Pluto

As New Horizons flew by Pluto on its closet approach today NASA released the best ever image of the planet. Should the spacecraft has survived its closet approach and did collect the data it was expected to, we should see much more stunning images in the coming days.

The spacecraft is scheduled to call home later this evening and report back its health at which time the researchers will know how much data was collected during its closet approach.
