Nasa has just released the global map (in progress) of Pluto. This map is still only black-and-white, but NASA is working on the colours right now.



Full Size Map

The image were gathered the 25th of April, and it comes from the New Horizon probe, which is on its way to mapping the rest of the dwarf planet as we speak.

I find this fascinating. It'll be a nice addition to my map of Mercury, map of Venus, map of Mars and map of Moon.

I am wondering... which topological feature they chose to place the Prime Meridian on? I am guessing it'll be the center, somewhere in the Tombaugh Regio...

New Horizon isn't orbiting Pluto. Did it image both sides of the planet (i mean non planetary body) during the one fly by?

The New Horizon has not imaged the other side yet, but yes it's all on one flyby.

Pluto does rotate on itself (it complete a full rotation each 6.4 earth days). I am guessing it shouldn't be long before the map is complete.

Interesting, we got the first rough mages of the near side so quickly (which haven't changed much, imo) but nothing as yet from the far side?

Sarcastic post is sarcastic. I get you, bro.

Regarding OP, New Horizons flew by Pluto once and for all, thus the high-rez images of the "near side" is all we get to see. The low-rez imagery of the other side will remain as such for decades to come.

Ooh, he looks great!

Now that we have a map of Pluto, maybe we'll see more pareidolia threads seeing lizards and bones on Pluto...

OMG, have we just established contact with an alien here on ATS? It's clearly trying to communicate something, using words it may have picked up from a spam post.
