NASA released a compiled video of the so-far sharpest images of Pluto from the New Horizons on its flyby on the 14th of July. The 100 yards per pixel resolution pictures taken by The New Horizons craft are currently en route back home. The images will help NASA take a closer look at this planet that’s 3 billion miles away from us. The compilation of videos and pictures offers a panoramic 50 mile strip panning view on this planet that lies.
Alan Stern, the Principal Investigator at New Horizons at Colorado’s Southwest Research Institute says that the most recently received images of Pluto give not only scientists but everyone a higher resolution, breathtaking glimpse into the non-planet Pluto’s geology says.
He goes on to claim that there was nothing that matched the quality of these photos available for Mars or Venus until several years after their maiden flybys.And yet for Pluto, it seems like we are already there– between mountains and craters, and in ice fields. All this was achieved less than half a year post the flyby.
These novel images reveal minuscule particulars of icy plains, mountains and craters. According to NASA, the 250-280 feet per pixel wide resolution, will show certain geographic features that could ideally be as small as half a city’s block, not that they are admitting to the discovery of extraterrestrials on the mini planet, naturally.
