Just a week after releasing some of the most incredible images of a planetary surface ever, the New Horizons team did it again today with even more new views of distant Pluto — this time with a high-resolution enhanced color image of Pluto that just begs to be intimately explored, pixel by pixel (and this is, in fact, what SwRI team member Alex Parker had to do over the past week in order to prepare the image for presentation.)
A low-res version is seen here, in which I have expanded the edges in order to fit nicely on a HD monitor in the event that you might want to use it as a desktop image (like me.) But in order to really experience it you have to download the full 8000×8000-pixel version here, which may take some time depending on the activity NASA’s servers are getting but trust me, it’s worth it.
There’s a lot going on in this image, which is by the way our highest-resolution enhanced-color image yet of Pluto, and you can read all about it here. But for now just enjoy. There will be much more to come!
