What did NASA’s New Horizons discover around Pluto?


In 2015, NASA’s New Horizons space probe whizzed by Pluto. Now it has sent back all of its data, what did it see and discover?

In this video, I showcase the journey New Horizons took in order to get to Pluto, its moons, geological features, and Pluto’s atmosphere.

  1. Very informative video, but I do have a question. What was illuminating Pluto when we saw the dark side of the planet when you were showing us the layers, and for that matter the side when we saw the surface detail? I was always told(maybe wrongly so) that Pluto is so far out that our sun would appear as small as any other star we see in our night's sky so I thought that it would be awfully hard to see anything on Pluto, regardless of the side you were on in respect to the sun? Is this camera tricks with low light apertures or light amplifying electronics or computer enhancement? I'm not crying conspiracy, the photos in this video explicitly said they were enhanced, I understand, just wondering how much light they had to add while doing it and how they did it?

  2. Admit it is a big round ball and not just a rock, what looks like a planet, rotates like a planet , obits the sun like a planet and is not a planet because some theorist sitting behind a desk said its not.

  4. Hey people, does anyone know a good source for 3D visualizations of the Planets? Something like Google Earth? I downloaded a 3D model of Pluto from the NASA website but it's basically just an image just mapped onto a sphere as far as i can tell

  5. Stay Alert: Proof that intelligent life have arrived to assist humanity (Galactic Forces of Light who are stationed in your solar system right now), will be hidden from you. Example: A Space Station 5 times your Earth is stationed behind your Sun right now.
