A bunch of amazing new Pluto images, released yesterday, July 24, including flowing nitrogen ice, similar to glaciers on Earth, and haze in Pluto’s atmosphere. A very alien world!

  1. Fantastic! so good of you to compile this here. I am trying to find a schedule for repeat NH press conferences or video downloads. The live ones are in the wee hours in my part of the world. The NASA TV site just says “NASA TV Programming”

    Any help?
