A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

It is going to take at least another year to send all the data back from the last flyby, but somewhere I've seen the engineers planning their next target in the Kuiper belt, there is plenty of fuel left onboard for further manoeuvers.

Over a year later, they are still looking for another candidate.
