Pluto Photos Were A Good Start, But New Data Paints A Better Picture - Newsy

Transcript: We're still getting a steady stream of Pluto data from New Horizons, which has the occasional burst of official science. Like these studies just released in the journal Science, showing Pluto is far more active than researchers thought. The findings include tectonics and ice volcanoes, as well as evidence for seasons and geologic surface activity. They are also investigating Pluto's weak atmosphere, as well as its four smaller moons, their characteristics and orbital paths. And researchers studied Pluto's immediate environment, especially how solar wind interacts with its atmosphere and magnetic field. We had strong evidence for many of these findings already, based on early analysis of images from New Horizons' flyby. Consider these newer studies as the scientifically rigorous confirmation. And expect more of the same in the coming months. New Horizons' download is expected to run until about September.
