I just hope they're able to get images as good as the ones they got of Pluto. It's awfully dark out there...
There is more to space photography than visible light such as infrared, ultraviolet, etc. The captures can be computer-analyzed and converted to a visual representation quite easily now.
I know that intellectually, but my emotional brain keeps taking over - and it says it's dark out there!

very interesting, thanks,
Chasing the elusive MU69. This will be *by far* the most distant world ever explored. @NewHorizons2015 will be there next New Year's Eve! https://t.co/QG95rlgzqA pic.twitter.com/BMq7x7sba2— David Grinspoon (@DrFunkySpoon) February 16, 2018
