  • In 2015, NASA's New Horizons space probe whizzed by Pluto. Now it has sent back all of its data, what did it see and discover? https://brilliant.org/astrum/ In this video, I showcase the journey New Horizons took in order to get to Pluto, its moons, geological features, and Pluto's atmosphere. ************** A big thank you to brilliant.org for supporting this video.

    Very informative video, but I do have a question. What was illuminating Pluto when we saw the dark side of the planet when you were showing us the layers, and for that matter the side when we saw the surface detail? I was always told(maybe wrongly so) that Pluto is so far out that our sun would appear as small as any other star we see in our night's sky so I thought that it would be awfully hard to see anything on Pluto, regardless of the side you were on in respect to the sun? Is this camera tricks with low light apertures or light amplifying electronics or computer enhancement? I'm not crying conspiracy, the photos in this video explicitly said they were enhanced, I understand, just wondering how much light they had to add while doing it and how they did it?

    Once the sun turns into a red giant, it will get so large that it will swallow Mercury, Venus and possibly Earth. And Pluto will be like 'Who's not a planet now?'

    Sad story! Charon trying to find his lost heart and Pluto wont show it to him! And so Charon runs around trying to outmanoeuvre Pluto ever since :(

    Alan Stern was the man who headed the New Horizons project and gave a seminar at my college recently. Seeing him was amazing. He was pretty short, has mostly gray hair, and he crosses his legs when he sits. And this regular guy just studied like crazy, worked insanely, and worked on a team of other phenomenal people to send a spacecraft all the way to Pluto, a 9 year journey in space, and 17 years of build up before that. As a mechanical engineering student I was so inspired. Everything we discover has to be discovered by a person. We all have the amazing potential to do extraordinary things if we work together and give our best. Hopefully this isn’t the last time we get to see the planet with the heart.

    You forgot to mention that the ashes of the man who discovered Pluto were put on board the probe so that he LITERALLY visited his discovery.

    Pluto and Charon are in love! They can’t look away from each other.

    Pluto still has a big heart even after being rejected as a planet ;(

    That heart, I just love that heart-shaped splotch. I mean it's the most unique thing I've ever seen. More unique than Jupiter's storms and marbling, because they kind of make sense, you expect them there. But a heart-shaped splotch? That's just randomness making beauty.

    Does this mean that pluto is a planet again?
