New Horizons unveils the Pluto system In July 2015, the New Horizons spacecraft flew through the Pluto system at high speed, humanity's first close look at this enigmatic system on the outskirts of our solar system. In a series of papers, the New Horizons team present their analysis of the encounter data downloaded so far: Moore et al. present the complex surface features and geology of Pluto and its large moon Charon, including evidence of tectonics, glacial flow, and possible cryovolcanoes… 

Surface compositions across Pluto and Charon

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.

The Pluto system after the New Horizons flyby

In July 2015, NASA’s New Horizons mission performed a flyby of Pluto, revealing details about the geology, surface composition and atmospheres of this world and its moons that are unobtainable from

The Pluto System After New Horizons

The New Horizons (NH) flyby of the Pluto–Charon binary planet and its system of four small surrounding satellites in mid-2015 revolutionized our knowledge of this distant planet and its moons. Beyond

The geology of Pluto and Charon through the eyes of New Horizons

Nasa’s New Horizons spacecraft has revealed a complex geology of Pluto and Charon, including evidence of tectonics, glacial flow, and possible cryovolcanoes, and these findings massively increase the understanding of the bodies in the outer solar system.

Surface compositions across Pluto and Charon

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.

The Pluto system: Initial results from its exploration by New Horizons

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.

A giant impact origin for Pluto's small moons and satellite multiplicity in the Kuiper belt

It is argued that dust–ice rings of variable optical depths form sporadically in the Pluto system, and that rich satellite systems may be found—perhaps frequently—around other large Kuiper belt objects.

Discovery of two new satellites of Pluto

The discovery of two additional moons around Pluto are reported, provisionally designated S/2005 P 1 ( hereafter P1) and S/ 2005 P 2 (hereafter P2), which makes Pluto the first Kuiper belt object known to have multiple satellites.
