At the end of the Jupiter flyby, New Horizons entered safe mode. I remember at that time a question being asked "What would happen if this happened during the Pluto flyby", and the answer was that safe mode was going to be disabled for a few weeks around the time of the flyby. I can't remember very precisely the time period.
Flash forward, New Horizons entered safe mode less than 2 weeks before the flyby. I can't find the original source of my knowledge. Deos anyone out there know what the plan was 8 years ago to disable safe mode around the time of the Pluto encounter?
