What It Was Like to Do a Flyby of Pluto


In July, the world (and scientists!) were mesmerized by the first-ever close-up photos of Pluto, the dwarf planet in the furthest orbit of our solar system, after NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft completed its near-ten-year journey to the planet. Now NASA has published a pretty amazing animation, constructed from some of the many images captured by New Horizons, showing what it might have been like if you were looking through a window of the spacecraft as it zipped by the planet.
