NASA release new Pluto flyby video from New Horizons mission

The New Horizons probe remains on an extended mission into the Kuiper Belt, a distant region made up of icy celestial bodies, including dwarf planets like Pluto and comets. The only bummer is there's no audio - I'd recommend Elton John's "Rocket Man" or R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly" if you want some soothing, appropriately themed background tunes. NASA has unveiled a set of detailed, high-quality global maps of Pluto and Charon.

The dramatic movie starts from the highlands all the way to the southwest where there is a great nitrogen ice plain known as the Sputnik Planitia.

The scientists used the actual New Horizon data and the new advanced elevation models of Pluto planet together with its biggest moon, Charon, to produce stunning movies that gives spectacular new outlook of many odd features that were discovery earlier.

According to New Horizons data released late a year ago, "Pluto's Heart" may hold an exciting huge ocean of slushy water ice.

Sputnick, the dark, cratered terrain of Cthulhu Macula, the rugged and fractured highlands of Voyager Terra, the pits of Pioneer Terra and the bladed terrain of Tartarus Dorsa all feature.

Shastri-Kohli team can create great magic
Shastri and he go back a long way, having been friends since their U-19 days back in early 1980s. When quizzed by TOI on whether he'd been signed up by the BCCI, Arun replied: "Not yet".

"Everywhere we turn are new mysteries".

Charon is a remarkable world in its own right, sporting an odd red cap and an enormous canyon called Serenity Chasma, which is more than 1,000 miles (1,600 km) long and, in places, twice as deep as Arizona's famous Grand Canyon, New Horizons team members have said.

"The view moves north, passing over Dorothy Gale crater and the dark polar hood of Mordor Macula".

Viewers also get a glimpse of the plains of Vulcan Planum and the "moated mountains" of Clarke Montes. In both of them, topographic relief has been exaggerated by two to three times, and surface colors have been enhanced, to highlight topography and detail, NASA officials said.
