This is a real victory for little projects.
Boldly waking up where nobody has gone before.
How did it get there?
There’s a man-made shuttle at the edge of the solar system, taking photos. It’s mind bending.
These two dim dots are none other than Pluto, the dwarf plant, and Charon, its largest moon. Though it might not look like much, this is the first ever colored photograph of the two cosmic bodies ever taken. We have NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft to thank for this, which used its Ralph color imager to make the shot from 71 million miles away.
