Visitors and engineers surround the base of the New Horizons Atlas V
rocket shortly after its arrival at the launch pad, preparing it for
possible launch to Pluto the following day. Heavily cropped from a
picture of the entire spacecraft, but I decided that focusing on the
activity at ground level made for a more interesting picture.
