Chasing Pluto's shadow in a Boeing 747




We are in SOFIA, a converted Boeing 747SP that is the largest airborne observatory in the world. The re-fitters have clearly been busy: gone are the familiar rows of airline seats and overhead bins, ripped out to make room for a multitude of computer monitors and a German-built 2.5-metre telescope. There are no flight attendants, no movies, no free whisky. I even had to bring my own food.
