#2 I hope Disney Pluto confirms that in one of your dreams >:) :x

The colour filter is there to receive information in multiple wavelengths so they can sample more data than just a normal tape / video. But others with greater knowledge about this have to explain further...

I always thought these probes would go by without swaying. In space things fly pretty accurately, right? Any ideas? Camera tilting?

#5 and #6 There's no explanation listed with or in the video or in your replies. So how about filling everyone in guys. Posting a video on Snotr is pointless if I have to go to the source to find out what it means......

New Horizons spacecraft as it passed by Pluto in July! But it’s not your ordinary movie … it’s actually taking a spectrum of Pluto, mapping out minerals on its surface as the world sweeps by underneath.

also imagine the insaine distance to pluto. its so small and the solar system is so big. even if you know where it is, it is still a pain to find it. every picture and movie of pluto is very rare.

#2 It's actually 90° off being gay... So, -if my trigonometry calculations are correct- that would make it straight. 8-)

@#8 since I don't want to type it out for you here you go

Basically Tldr, it maps out specturms to see the minerals on pluto.

That's part of the reason but more explained there.

One must pursue knowledge to obtain it.

#11. Not necessarily. I was once walking beneath the window of the school library, minding my own business, when an encyclopedia fell on my head. :|
