New Horizons is back to sending photos home

Sure, you marveled at the first close up photos of Pluto that the New Horizons spacecraft captured as it soared past the planet. But that was only about 5% of the total photo set. Starting now, the spacecraft will be sending home everything.

Note, originally we were going to compressed versions of the images, from Sept through November, but after seeing the JPEG artifacts, the team has decided to do the uncompressed download, which will take about a year total. The raw image feed is here.
