The First Close-Up Look at Pluto
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has published the first close up images of Pluto taken by the New Horizons spacecraft as it flew by the dwarf planet in July. It will take NASA a year to download all of the data from the spacecraft, but the initial images reveal a range of complex surface features that have surprised scientists. NASA will publish these images, which also include close up photographs of Pluto’s moons, on a weekly basis as they become available.
