Have A Virtual Aerial Tour of Pluto, Thanks To NASA's New Horizons

New Horizons, launched as a part of NASA's New Frontiers program stitched together high-resolution images of Pluto and created a brilliant animation video. We can see the surface topography (not in much detail though) of the planet. Hoping to see more and more of Pluto and its moons Charon, Styx, Nix, Hydra and Kerberos.

These are some Remarkable example of Art meets Science.
