NASA Successfully Completes Probe On Pluto

Charon is a remarkable world in its own right, sporting an odd red cap and an enormous canyon called Serenity Chasma, which is more than 1,000 miles (1,600 km) long and, in places, twice as deep as Arizona's famous Grand Canyon, New Horizons team members have said. All feature names in the Pluto system are informal.

Both flyovers depict only the encounter hemispheres observed by New Horizons in high resolution.

Nasa has just released a number of stunning photos and videos of Pluto and its largest moon Charon, taken by the New Horizons probe during its historic flyby in 2015.

The two-minute Pluto fly over video begins over highlands southwest of the iconic left side of Pluto's heart-shaped plain known as Sputnik Planitia and over the darker, cratered region bordering it known as Cthulhu Macula.

Froome regains control as Matthews wins stage 14 of Tour de France
Mikel Landa has been so strong over the last two weeks that there is no doubt he could be a team leader at the Tour de France . Bennett finished 32nd, 6min 25sec behind Dutch stage victor Bauke Mollema, with several of his rivals finishing ahead of him.

As the tour moves north, the rugged and fractured highlands of Voyager Terra can be seen before we head over Pioneer Terra and the bladed terrain of Tartarus Dorsa, in the far east of the encounter hemisphere.

The digital recordings were done by Paul Schenk and John Blackwell from Lunar and Planetary Institute, Houston.

Formed in 1958, NASA is one of the preeminent space agencies now in operation, is the only organization to land astronauts on the surface of the Moon, to carry out extended missions on the planet Mars and more.

According to New Horizons data released late a year ago, "Pluto's Heart" may hold an exciting huge ocean of slushy water ice.

"Everywhere we turn are new mysteries". The New Horizons spacecraft captured over 1,200 pictures of Pluto planet and huge data during its probe, which NASA scientists are still examining. "These new maps from the landmark exploration of Pluto by NASA's New Horizons mission in 2015 will help unravel these mysteries and are for everyone to enjoy", Stern added.

New Horizons isn't done yet. Charon's diameter is half of that of Pluto. New Horizons Probe went deeper into the Kuiper Belt, a huge area containing "objects", majority are rocky and are completely frozen.

Initial estimates of MU69's diameter, based primarily on data taken by the Hubble Space Telescope since the KBO's discovery in 2014, fall in the 12-25-mile (20-40-kilometer) range - though data from this summer's ground-based occultation observations might imply it's at or even below the smallest sizes expected before the June 3 occultation. Due to this discussion and the appearance of new data the International Astronomical Union (IAU) defined the term "planet" formally in 2006, during their 26th General Assembly resulting in the exclusion of Pluto which was then classified as a dwarf planet.
