The images taken by new Horizon feature many fascinating details about the dwarf planet and have been turned into a tour.

Almost the entire tech world knows about the voyage of New Horizons. The aircraft is the first to have reached the planet Pluto. The voyage has sent back numerous photos to the NASA headquarters.

The quality and detailing of the images have baffled numerous scientists around the world. Now NASA has decided to turn the images into an aerial tour. The tour will show the landscape of the dwarf planet Pluto.

The detailing in the images shows the surface features of the celestial body. The pictures are also one of a kind. The images show Charon, the largest moon of Pluto.

The resolution of the pictures taken by New Horizons is of 400 meters per pixel.  A team of NASA scientists have put the images together and turned them into a video. The animation contains some clips with a resolution of 400 m/px.

While some clips are of a lower quality of 800 m/px, a few clips assembled by the NASA scientists are also of only 2.1 km/px resolution. The video will be shown in the tour of Pluto. The video will give the viewers a feeling of being on the surface of Pluto. 

The tour of Pluto as being developed by NASA will start from a feature called Norgay Monets. The Norgay Monets are at a height of 200 kilometers. The tour will then take the viewers to the North, over Sputnik Planum and Cthulhu Regio.

According to the NASA scientists are expected to receive more images from the New Horizon voyage. The expected images will be of even higher quality.
