It starts with a distant view of the dwarf planet as well as its largest moon, called Charon. The video is created by piecing together 100 still images taken by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft during six weeks as it approached Pluto and also the close flyby in the summer of 2015.
"Just over a year ago, Pluto was a dot in the distance", New Horizons principal investigator Alan Stern, of the Southwest Research Institute, Boulder, Colorado, said. The trilling ride ended up on landing on the shoreline of Pluto region, informally named Sputnik Planitia.These are some of the most existing distant views of Pluto we have seen over the years. The scientist of NASA had also interpolated some of the black and white frames of the same and is making the viewers know in details about how the Pluto looks like with its moot and seamless efforts. Following that step, they stacked lo-res color images taken by New Horizon's Ralph instrument on top of the monochrome photos to glean the best possible interpretation of what an approach to Pluto would actually look like.
The New Horizons mission set out in 2006 to understand where Pluto and its moons "fit in" with the other objects in the solar system, such as the inner rocky planets (Earth, Mars, Venus and Mercury) and the outer gas giants (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune).
It took New Horizons almost 10 years to make its trip of 3 billion miles to get there.
The spacecraft is carrying powerful telescopic cameras that can see features on the surface of a planet or moon smaller than a football field, according to the space agency. The spacecraft will now send home data about the ancient celestial body, 2014 MU69, located at a distance of 1.6 billion km (1 billion miles) away from the dwarf planet.
