Images from the NASA New Horizons probe's September 11th, 2015 download were stitched together to create this fly-over of Pluto showing the minor planet's features.


Stunning when you consider Pluto is 4.67 billion miles from Earth and we are the first people in the history of mankind to see the planet in such detail , we are in a Golden age of discovery and aside from the negative stories filling the headlines the 21st Century is a great time to live and a great time for science.

That's good, and let's hope we get an even more detailed montage for most of the planet. The pictures seen here would be going back a bit.

Yeah, that's so August, better to come. I was unaware that the spacecraft had a microphone on it and caught such oddly boring music emitting from the planet. All that aside, flag and stars for an interesting ride.

What?!?

Now if only technology could stop people saying utterly stupid things that have no bearing on the stated topic or on actual reality... Now that would be something....


On topic. Things like this are the only way people like us are going to experience other world's. With the push for VR or AR coming in the next year or two we are going to be able to use this information in our own homes to travel our entire solar system and stand on other world's within our living rooms. That is really going to be something.

Now if technology could only solve the problem of standardised education then that would be fantastic!

NASA and their breadcrumbs....OH DA HORRA!

Imagine if that "frozen ocean", wasn't an ocean after all. That it was in fact the negative and inverse image of a gaping maw of some massive organic lifeform burrowed onto the surface of this sphere, acting as a hungry parasite.

Now that would be interesting.

Seems like Pluto is getting a lot more attention than the white spots on Ceres...It is pretty cool (no pun) to see pictures of Pluto but I feel like they shifted their focus away from the bizarre white spots on Ceres.

Well, now after seeing it I'm especially confused as to why they named it after that Disney dog.

Not a very cute or endearing planet but hey: Pluto.
