Pluto and Charon

Pluto and Charon from New Horizons

The New Horizons space probe will fly by the Pluto-Charon binary on next Tuesday.

The above is a composite colour image that was released a couple of days ago. Both objects are visible. The close flyby images will be much better.

A lot to look forward to, needless to say! 2015 has been a good year for space probes.
