On Tuesday New Horizons made a course correction burn, so yesterday I updated New Horizons, Pluto and all its moons.  I believe they want NH to pass through the shadows of both Pluto and Charon so they can study their atmospheres with the planets back-lit.  This animation shows NH barely missing, so I would expect another burn soon.

This is absolutely a wonderful achievement Tony !  
I see a lot of new features in the html version compared to the GravSim executable .
Is there any chance the GravSim will get this features also in the future ?
