Thermal structure of Jupiter's atmosphere near the edge of a 5‐μm hot spot in the north equatorial belt
Thermal structure of the atmosphere of Jupiter was measured from 1029 km above to 133 km below the 1-bar level during entry and descent of the Galileo probe. The data confirm the hot exosphereExpand
Surface Ices and the Atmospheric Composition of Pluto
Observations of the 1.4- to 2.4-micrometer spectrum of Pluto reveal absorptions of carbon monoxide and nitrogen ices and confirm the presence of solid methane. Frozen nitrogen is more abundant thanExpand
The Pluto system: Initial results from its exploration by New Horizons
TLDR
The New Horizons encounter revealed that Pluto displays a surprisingly wide variety of geological landforms, including those resulting from glaciological and surface-atmosphere interactions as well as impact, tectonic, possible cryovolcanic, and mass-wasting processes. Expand
Gravity Waves in Jupiter's Thermosphere
The Atmosphere Structure Instrument on the Galileo probe detected wavelike temperature fluctuations superimposed on a 700-kelvin temperature increase in Jupiter's thermosphere. These fluctuations areExpand
Surface compositions across Pluto and Charon
TLDR
The New Horizons team presents the complex surface features and geology of Pluto and its large moon Charon, including evidence of tectonics, glacial flow, and possible cryovolcanoes, as well as their analysis of the encounter data downloaded so far. Expand
The small satellites of Pluto as observed by New Horizons
TLDR
The New Horizons results on Pluto’s small moons help to elucidate the conditions under which the Pluto system formed and evolved, and massively increase the understanding of the bodies in the outer solar system. Expand

TLDR
The New Horizons team presents the complex surface features and geology of Pluto and its large moon Charon, including evidence of tectonics, glacial flow, and possible cryovolcanoes, and their analysis of the encounter data downloaded so far. Expand
PLUTO AND CHARON WITH THE HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE. II. RESOLVING CHANGES ON PLUTO’S SURFACE AND A MAP FOR CHARON
We present new imaging of the surface of Pluto and Charon obtained during 2002–2003 with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) instrument. Using these data, we constructExpand
Ralph: A Visible/Infrared Imager for the New Horizons Pluto/Kuiper Belt Mission
The New Horizons instrument named Ralph is a visible/near infrared multi-spectral imager and a short wavelength infrared spectral imager. It is one of the core instruments on New Horizons, NASA’sExpand
Analysis of stellar occultation data for planetary atmospheres. I - Model fitting, with application to Pluto
Consideration is given to an analytic model for a stellar-occultation light curve developed for a small, spherically symmetric planetary atmosphere that includes thermal and molecular weightExpand
