First Human To Leave Our Solar System Has Arrived At His Destination - Clyde Tombaugh

Think about it...amazing changes in a short time....Clyde Tombaugh, born in 1906, discovers Pluto in 1930. Now, in 2015, only 85 years later, a NASA spacecraft flies to Pluto. A 9 year journey into the void, to photograph that distant planet, with Mr Tombaugh's ashes on board! His will be the first human remains to leave our solar system, a well-deserved honor. I'm glad he got to visit Pluto, and glad he lived happily in Mesilla Park, New Mexico for so many years.
