This figure shows solar wind observations measured by New Horizons from January 1 to August 25, 2015. This measurement of seed particles for anomalous cosmic rays in the solar wind is completely new in this region of space and is key for interpreting Voyager data further out in the interstellar boundary region. Points closer to the top of the graph correspond to higher-energy particles, and red and yellow colors show a larger number of particles hitting the detector.

10 Amazing Facts About Pluto

Pluto facts give the information about the dwarf planet in the solar system. Since the distance between Pluto and the sun is very far away, it needs 248 earth years for the Pluto to orbit the sun.
