Patricia Tombaugh, 93, attends a press conference at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla. on Thursday, Jan. 19, 2006 after the launch of an Atlas V rocket that will carry the New Horizons spacecraft on a mission to the planet Pluto. Her late husband, Clyde Tombaugh, discovered the planet Pluto in 1930. The spacecraft, which is carrying some of Tombaugh's ashes, is estimated to reach Pluto by July 2015. Tombaugh, of Las Cruces, N.M., was in tears as she watched the launch from four miles away. "I got emotional. I really did. I just got carried away," she said. "It was so beautiful and we've waited so long." (AP Photo/John Raoux)
