New Horizons Found Something Strange on Pluto


New Horizons Found Something Strange on Pluto

New Horizons found lots of interesting things about the previously unexplored Pluto. The former planet is home to ice-mountains floating in nitrogen, methane-ice towers as big as sky scrapers and maybe even a subsurface ocean!

It's moon, Charon, was also explored by New Horizons and has some strange features. Nix, Hydra, Kerberos and Stix were chartered by the probe.

After studying the Pluto system, New Horizons blasted off into the Kupier belt, to study Ultima Thule. New Horizons is still going, nearing the edge of the solar system.

On July 14, 2015, a small, shimmering spacecraft was the first to explore Pluto up-close, and probe at the icy objects of the Kuiper Belt. Data from that rare encounter during NASA's New Horizons mission may have just rewritten the origin story of the most popular dwarf planet, and changed our understanding of Pluto's early history.

What Did The Interplanetary Space Probe New Horizons Discover On Pluto?

On to new horizons! Never before had a space probe been sent to the outermost planet of our solar system. NASA's New Horizons project is one of the most up-to-date and is still providing new data today. After examining the Pluto system, the New Horizons spacecraft flew on to the Kuiper Belt.

What did NASA's New Horizons Find Near Pluto?

Discoveries by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft! From Pluto's moon Charon to a special kind of ice we look at what the mission found.

Kuiper Belt
It's all good though, because Pluto, and its main moon Charon , along with four more, made worthy targets for investigation. All of the planetesimals , dwarf planets, comets, and millions of smaller objects are part of the Kuiper Belt that surrounds our whole solar system. Most of the Kuiper Belt objects have unusual orbits that aren't well-aligned with the planetary plane of the ecliptic where most of the full-sized planets are. In comparison, our Asteroid Belt, between Mars and Jupiter, is nothing like you see in bad Sci-Fi films. The odds of two objects being within sight of each other are actually remarkably small. While there are over 200 objects that are more than 100 kilometers across and at least one million one-kilometer objects, they are very far apart in a very big space. The Kuiper Belt, on the other hand, has thousands of times more objects so there is a lot to investigate out there. It possesses untouched and uncontaminated leftovers from the formation of the Solar System. It's like a history book just waiting to be read.

Almost a Decade to Get There
It's pretty hard to believe, but the New Horizons Mission faced a lot of apathetic opposition. The detractors actually thought that Pluto was going to be pretty dull and not worth the effort of visiting. The mission was on and off again so many times that it took an immense amount of focus from the New Horizons scientists to finally get it, literally, off the ground and into space. They used the biggest rocket available, The Atlas, and made the lightest spacecraft they could manage. As a result, at launch it made it to the moon in nine hours, compared to the Apollo Program, which took nearly four days to get to the Moon. They also used a gravity slingshot effect around Jupiter to add another few kilometers per second, shaving about 3 years off of the total flight time. They got to Pluto in just nine years with the fastest traveling spaceship in human history. It hit speeds of 1.6 million kilometers per day. That's 66,000 kilometers per hour, or 1,100 kilometres per minute, or 18.5 kilometers per second.

What did New Horizons Find?
The enthusiasts knew it was going to be good, and all the detractors were surprised at just how interesting it really was. In mid-2014, at a distance of about 430 million kilometers, approximately three times the distance between Earth and Sun, the team powered the systems back on and started to take multiple daily images. Details started to become clearer and clearer; the surface was surprisingly multihued with light and dark patches and, finally, as they closed in, vivid colors like reddish browns. The first big surprise was the giant Valentines heart-shape about the size of Texas on one side. With a data rate of only 1 Kilo-bit per second, it took a very long time to start getting picture data, not to mention the 4.5 hour time delay due to the speed of light. From this data they could watch the orbital dance of Charon and Pluto as they spun about their barycenter.

What did NASA's New Horizons discover around Pluto

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?
In this video, I showcase the journey New Horizons took in order to get to Pluto, its moons, geological features, and Pluto's atmosphere.

NASA Loses Contact with New Horizons on Pluto Approach

As NASA's New Horizons probe was about to fly by Pluto, the probe's computer suddenly went offline breaking communication with scientists on Earth.

What did New Horizons interplanetary ship see on approach to Pluto?

Summer 2015 was marked by a unique astronomical event, which occurs approximately once in ... the history of astronomy. The New Horizons station is the first man-made object to reach Pluto. Till now, an incredibly distant and barely seen by telescopes ice dwarf remained an almost complete mystery to scientists. Let's find out what the apparatus saw, and whether it managed to expand our scientific “horizons”.

Something Strange is Happening in Planet Pluto Sh0cking Footage You need know

Subscribe here: NASAs New Horizons probe has returned further images of Pluto that include a view of the dwarf planets strange icy plains. Report by Sarah Kerr. Current.

Astronomers may have discovered evidence of an unseen planet in the farthest reaches of our solar system, almost 10 years after Pluto was demoted. Michael Lemonick is a writer for Scientific.

New evidence collected by astronomers and scientists out of the California Institute of Technology shows a possible “giant, icy planet” on the outskirts of our solar system, calling it.

Astronomers have cataloged eight planets, 6,500 comets and more than 525,000 asteroids, but a mysterious thing happened on October 19, 2017 in Hawaii that grabbed the attention of millions of people and scientists around the world because what they discovered was unlike anything seen before. The first ever recorded interstellar object was found to have entered our solar system somewhere from deep space. It was given the name Oumuamua, named after the Hawaiian term for ‘scout’ or ‘messenger from afar’, and its path showed that it was not gravitationally bound to our own solar system. But what was this strange object, and where did it come from?

NEW object discovered behind Pluto | NASA image 'raises eyebrows'!

MAY 23, 2016: A new, very fast rotating object has been discovered, however, there is something strange about NASA's pictures and video clip they have released to the public.

As NASA's New Horizons probe speeds toward a possible encounter with an object beyond the orbit of Pluto, the spacecraft has made observations of another icy object located in the same outer region of the solar system. New Horizons finished its close encounter with Pluto last July and since then has completed two sets of observations on an object in the Kuiper Belt, the band of objects beyond the orbit of Neptune. The icy body is known as 1994 JR1 and orbits about 32 astronomical units away from the sun (an astronomical unit is the distance from the Earth to the sun).

New Horizon finds strange fact about Pluto | Habitable? | Subsurface Ocean

Data from that rare encounter during NASA's New Horizons mission may have just rewritten the origin story of the most popular dwarf planet, and changed our understanding of Pluto's early history.

Astronomers have long believed that Pluto started off as an icy, cold rock in the Kuiper Belt. However, the new findings suggest that Pluto may have actually started off hot, and had a subsurface ocean when it first formed.

The study, published Monday in the journal Nature Geoscience, not only increases the chances of Pluto having been habitable at some point during its early history, but also increases the potential for habitability for distant, icy objects in the Kuiper Belt.

Pluto already has a notorious past. In August, 2006, the cold world was officially demoted from a budding planet of the Solar System to a dwarf planet located in the doughnut-shaped ring of icy objects in the outer Solar System known as the Kuiper Belt.
