The Surface of Pluto

The Hubble Space Telescope's photographs of the surface of Pluto are available on the Web. The photographs were taken during a seven day period in late June and early July of 1994, but have just recently become available. To understand the power of the Hubble Telescope, "viewing surface detail on Pluto is as difficult as trying to read the printing on a golf ball located thirty-three miles away!" Along with two resolutions of a surface map of Pluto, there are three resolutions of an entire planet picture, as well as PostScript and Adobe Acrobat PDF illustrations of the planet's orientation during the picture. Explanatory captions are provided.
