Pluto: Then and Now This image shows our previous best view of Pluto, provided by the Hubble Space Telescope, as it morphs into the spectacular new image from the New Horizons mission. The Hubble image was released in 2010, and the New Horizons image of the same region was taken on July 13 as the spacecraft—nearing the culmination of its decade-long journey—successfully captured the first detailed images of the distant dwarf planet.
