August 24, 2015 — Where Are the Pluto Pictures?

Why hasn’t this website included any new images from New Horizons since July? As planned, New Horizons itself is on a bit of a post-flyby break, currently sending back lower data-rate information collected by the energetic particle, solar wind and space dust instruments. It will resume sending flyby images and other data in early September.

The team will dive back into data analysis and the pace of news and image releases will pick up with the team's activity. New Horizons – which is healthy and operating normally – will continue to send data back to Earth through fall 2016.

Stay tuned!
