This is my impression of what New Horizons may see when it does it's flyby of Pluto in 2015. I painted this as though I was standing on Hydra looking back at Pluto, Charon and Nix with our dim sun in the background. It will be very interesting to find out what Pluto and the others really look like. Cheers, Phil

Hey Chris, there is also a book called "Film Noir/ The Making of Blade Runner" not too many images in it but there are some. The book is mostly about how they got the funding for the film and how it was made complete with removed scenes, very cool if you can get your hands on it.

Hey Trevor, funny enough you should ask, it was really quite simple, NASA built me a suit complete with Photoshop CS2015, it was very cool, Photoshop showed up on my viser and all I had to do was use my mind for the color, brushes and levels. Okay........I am making it up.....I really was not there. Man you ask the tough questions:)
