Bjorn Jonsson used the photos taken by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft to make an animation of the probe's flyby of Pluto. The time covered is 09:35 to 13:35 (closest approach occurred near 11:50). Pluto's atmosphere is included and should be fairly realistic from about 10 seconds into the animation and to the end. Show More Summary

From the “department of limiting UHI” and NASA/GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER Cities are well known hot spots – literally. The urban heat island effect has long been observed to raise the temperature of big cities by 1 to 3°C (1.8 to 5.4°F), a rise that is due to the presence of asphalt, concrete, buildings, and…
UFOlogists say that NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has photographed a UFO crash site on planet Mars. The MRO image of the alleged crash site shows what UFOlogists and scientists agree is a bizarre-looking impact crater in the Elysium Planitia plains that straddles the Martian equator.
