Pluto Images Arrive

New Horizons date keeps pumping back to Earth after her crazy, wild hair fly by of the planet Pluto...before she plunged into the nether of space (she has to go through the belt first of course). But NASA is pretty excited!

“This is what we came for—these images, spectra and other data types that are going to help us understand the origin and the evolution of the Pluto system for the first time,” said New Horizons Principal Investigator Alan Stern, of the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in Boulder, Colorado. “And what’s coming is not just the remaining 95 percent of the data that’s still aboard the spacecraft— it’s the best datasets, the highest-resolution images and spectra, the most important atmospheric datasets, and more. It’s a treasure trove. ”
