The Pluto system as NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft saw it in July 2015. This animation, made with real images taken by New Horizons, begins with Pluto flying in for its close-up on July 14; we then pass behind Pluto and see the atmosphere glow in sunlight before the sun passes behind Charon. The New Horizons spacecraft launched on January 19, 2006 – beginning its odyssey to Pluto and the Kuiper Belt. New Horizons now continues on its unparalleled journey of exploration with the close flyby of a Kuiper Belt object called 2014 MU69 – nicknamed Ultima Thule – on January 1, 2019. New Horizons found that Pluto's atmosphere actually has just the steep temperature gradient needed to explain the stellar occultation data. However, New Horizons also discovered thin haze layers in Pluto's atmosphere using images taken from behind Pluto, looking back toward the Sun. The images posted at this website were taken by the LOng Range Reconnaissance Imager LORRI on the New Horizons spacecraft. LORRI is the most sensitive and highest resolution imager aboard New Horizons. In fact, it is one of the most sensitive and highest.
The New Horizons spacecraft launched on January 19, 2006 – beginning its odyssey to Pluto and the Kuiper Belt. New Horizons now continues on its unparalleled journey of exploration with the close flyby of a Kuiper Belt object called 2014 MU69 – officially named Arrokoth – on January 1, 2019. Okay, the New Horizons Pluto encounter didn’t quite play out that way, but the science team really did want to get the most out of all the images of Pluto and its moons that we could, and often, as quickly as we could. I’m Tod Lauer, an astrophysicist who mainly works on stuff far beyond our galaxy. New Horizons images of a region near Pluto’s equator revealed a range of young mountains rising as high as 11,000 feet 3,500 meters above the surface of the icy body. Scientists base the youthful age estimate on the lack of craters in the image above. New Horizons ankom till Pluto den 14 juli 2015  och flög omkring 12 000 km över Plutos yta. Sonden hade en relativ hastighet på 13,78 km/s när den var som närmast. New Horizons flög förbi månen Charon så nära som 27 000 km. Sonden kunde bara fotografera Plutos halva yta vid passagen; den del som var solbelyst.
2015-06-12 · As NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft speeds closer to the Pluto system new images of Pluto are emerging, giving a better view of Pluto's surface features. A series of new images obtained by the spacecraft’s telescopic Long Range Reconnaissance Imager LORRI during May 29-June 2 show Pluto. New Horizons also imaged Hydra and has sent some of these images to Earth. Below is the best LORRI image of Hydra taken by New Horizons. Unfortunately, Hydra was on the opposite side of Pluto from New Horizons at closest approach, so the images of Hydra are from farther away and therefore are at lower resolution than the Nix images we have. No one can doubt the beauty of Pluto and Charon—amazing worlds revealed by the images from NASA’s New Horizons mission. From Pluto’s mountains, glaciers, ice-volcanoes, blue skies, and layered colorings to Charon’s vast tectonic structures and enigmatic red-colored pole, these pictures and associated spectra are rich puzzles waiting to. 2015-07-14 · Ultima Thule Beyond Pluto Is Flat Like a Pancake and Not a Space Snowman After All By Mike Wall. The final photos that NASA's New Horizons spacecraft snapped of Ultima Thule during the probe's epic Jan. 1 flyby reveal the distant object to be much flatter than scientists had thought.

Its flyby of Pluto and Pluto’s system of at least five moons on July 14 will complete the initial exploration of the classical solar system. LESIA achieved its highest resolution data of Pluto of about 3 km/pixel at New Horizon ' s closest approach to Pluto on July 14, 2015, when it was 47,000 km distant. Images. During the flyby of Pluto on July 14, 2015, Ralph was able to collect data on Pluto and its moons yielding various image products. The images will provide New Horizons' only view of Pluto's lesser-known south polar region, currently in the midst of a numbingly-long winter. "The only way for New Horizons to observe Pluto's elusive night region is to see it in 'Charonshine,'" says Cathy Olkin, New Horizons deputy project scientist.
The New Horizons spacecraft, which flew by Pluto in July 2015, is the first and so far only attempt to explore Pluto directly. Launched in 2006, it captured its first distant images of Pluto in late September 2006 during a test of the Long Range Reconnaissance Imager. New Horizons is an interplanetary space probe that was launched as a part of NASA's New Frontiers program. Engineered by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory APL and the Southwest Research Institute SwRI, with a team led by S. Alan Stern, the spacecraft was launched in 2006 with the primary mission to perform a flyby. 2015-07-09 · NASA's New Horizons spacecraft is less than a week away from the first-ever flyby of frigid and faraway Pluto.
