July 14, 2015 marks the day we finally have a complete family photo of our solar system’s planets.
(Yes, I said planets. Take that, Neil!)
The space probe New Horizons has completed its nine-year journey to fly by Pluto and its moons. We now have a clear photograph of how Pluto looks like.
Pluto’s Photo from NASA
Thanks to social media, NASA was able to give live updates on the current status of the New Horizons probe, culminating into this true color image of the said planet.
As expected, illustrators from all around the internet are already on it and created several fan art shared across social media channels.
Check out some of the internet’s Pluto Flyby fan art here:
I won’t give up on you Pluto.
New Horizons will continue to gather data on Pluto and its moons, Charon, Nix, Styx, Hydra, and Kerberos as well as other astronomical objects in the Kuiper Belt.
