Pluto & Charon: The New Horizons spacecraft at the farthest worldly shores

Results of the flyby of the New Horizons spacecraft at Pluto and its satellites

On 14 July 2015, Pluto changed before our very eyes from a dot of light into a world. The image of the (dwarf) planet with its bright white heart went all over the world, touching the hearts of people like few other images from outer space.

Meanwhile we have found out what Pluto's heart is made of, though not yet how it came to be. And the New Horizons spacecraft has discovered many other remarkable landscapes on this remote celestial body that, surprisingly, looks as earth-like as few other bodies in the solar system. 

This book tells of what the American spacecraft has sent to earth till April 2016, displays the best images of Pluto and its moons on large prints and describes it like we see it today - an alien world that no Science-Fiction author could have imagined more weird.
