NASA Stitched Together Photos Of Pluto’s Frozen Landscape And Produced This Beauty

Updated on 9 July, 2016 at 8:35 am By

Eight months after the New Horizons made its historic flyby of Pluto, NASA has released the most detailed map of the cold planet till date.

 

The map of Pluto has been created by stitching together several detailed images clicked by the spacecraft over the months.

The data collected over these months have now given scientists enough photographs to produce a new composite map, which is the sharpest and most detailed look at the dwarf planet till date.

The newly updated black-and-white map of Pluto includes images of the surface that the New Horizons acquired between July 7 to 14 in 2015 and also some spliced images that were received on April 25, 2016.

Though it’ll take over a year for New Horizons to transmit all the data that it collected during the flyby due to bandwidth limitations, the map that is shaping up would soon also have improved colour maps.
