Pluto Calling

Antennas at the Madrid Deep Space Communication Complex, Robledo de Chavela, Spain.
The New Horizons probe is sending back some cool pictures of Pluto and its moons, but not very many, and not very often. Talking to the probe is like using a dial-up modem (kids, ask your parents). Emily Lakdawalla has a good explanation posted on planetary dot org. NASA has a page about their Deep Space Network.
