Title: Research Highlights

This collection contains two articles, "NASA's New Horizons Mission to Pluto" and the "Diversity of Chemistry and Geologic Processes Observed by the MSL/Chem Cam Laser Instrument in Gale Crater, Mars". These highlights describe how New Horizons came to be, how the spacecraft got to Pluto, and how the findings are challenging our understanding of ice worlds in the outer solar system; and the ChemCam, one of ten instrument packages on board the rover.
