A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

I can't stop rewatching that. It's just peacefully tumbling out there as NH flies by it.

This is really wonderful, especially since there were no actual "half-phase" images, (the lack of illumination combined with flyby speed made it impossible, I assume)?

Haven't made an anaglyph for awhile, couldn't resist with this one. What a fantastic object. Roman, thank you for the great work on Arrokoth!

Arrokoth Approach.
About 230 images of Arrokoth were aligned, stacked, deconvolved, resized and de-rotated to create this 'ping-pong' animation.
The animation covers 13 hours of observations.
