NASA’ s New Horizon Begins Sending Data on Pluto

After a journey of nine years and 3 billion miles, the New Horizons spacecraft re-established contact with NASA and was furiously collecting data and what are expected to be “dazzling” images of the dwarf planet Pluto.

Starting at 5:50 a.m. ET on Wednesday, the spacecraft is expected to begin sending the most detailed images of the dwarf planet that scientists have ever seen, along with mapping and measurements about the planet, its atmosphere and moons.
