Free For All – Flying Over Pluto

With all the data coming back to Earth from New Horizons, we are being inundated with images and data from the distant dwarf planet. Researchers on the New Horizons’ team have taken a number of the images sent back from Pluto and stitched them together to create more regional and global views at varying resolutions. Stuart Robbins took it upon himself to create an animation using these mosaics, creating a fly-over effect for Pluto. You can learn more about his work and animation here.
