Monday Morning Zen

This week is going to be historic for NASA as the New Horizons spacecraft passes by Pluto.  While you might think that this has little to do with the entertainment lighting industry, it actually does.  Advancements in lens design, glass manufacturing, and communications technology benefit us greatly as they will help to ensure that the way that we project light will improve over time.  We here at Chauvet Professional congratulate NASA on their upcoming mission apogee.  To keep up with the mission, check out http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/newhorizons/main/index.html
