Dozens of women helped to make the epic flyby happen on July 14 when the spacecraft came within 7,800 miles of the planet’s frigid surface. The new photos of Pluto are awesome!

As Cathy Orkin, a deputy project scientist, said, humbly, “New Horizons is about a group of talented, smart people who are passionate about the mission. That’s what makes them awesome.”

You can stay in touch with this mission on Twitter #PlutoFlyby and on Facebook.
