The New Horizons spacecraft was launched in 2006 to study Pluto and its moons. The spacecraft is expected to arrive two years and two days from now. But it hasn’t been idle: the image below, taken about 10 days ago, shows Pluto from a distance of 880 million km. The white blob is Pluto, and next to it the moon Charon can just be seen. Not much, perhaps, but as the months go by, the pictures will get more and more awesome.
