Pluto New Horizon Flyby Probe – How Big Pluto Size is?
Recent Measurements obtained by New Horizons Shows that the Diameter of the Pluto is very big than we have thought. The Diameter of Pluto is 2370 Km which means around 19% of Earth’s Diameter. So the Pluto is really big than we have thought.
The Result of this shows or indicated that Pluto is the largest object found in the outer zone of the solar system.
The Size of Pluto was always a big Question but now the NASA’s New Horizon mission has answered question regarding the size of Pluto.
At 7:49:57 ET on Tuesday – 14th July, 2015, the spacecraft will fly about 12,493 KM above the dwarf planet. The will capture all the photos of Pluto and collect all the scientific data from the Pluto. The photos will be taken at High Resolution, so that everything will be cleared. But we won’t be able to see the photos and other data today because the spacecraft is only to collect data and capture the photos but not to transmit during the fly. So the Photos will be available on Wednesday or after Wednesday.
The Engineers have designed the Spacecraft in a very good way and keeping in mind all the conditions. The Spacecraft will fly at the speed 49,899 KM per hour i.e. around 31,000 miles per hour. So, they have designed the Spacecraft in such a way that the weight of the spacecraft is very light, so that it can fly at a very high speed but from other side it also cannot carry much fuel.
So, now let’s wait and watch for the photographs to come .
