NASA unveils stunning Pluto mosaic

  • NASA has unveiled stunning mosaics of Pluto and its largest moon Charon, representing the global response to its popular "#PlutoTime" social media campaign. The Pluto Time concept and widget was developed by NASA's New Horizons science team so that people could experience the approximate sunlight level on Pluto at noon -- generally around dawn or dusk on the Earth, the American space agency said on Tuesday. Since the Pluto Time campaign was announced in June this year, NASA received more than 339,000 visits to the Pluto Time widget and almost 7,000 image submissions from across the globe. (Source: IANS)
