Welcome to this new edition of Interactive Inspiration, that has the “Pluto Flyby” as the center topic, with really nice works from the New York Times and The Washington Post. Both publishers shared online stories on how the New Horizon probe reached Pluto, after nine years of space travel, and of course, the new imagery that was sent back to Earth.
Besides the visualizations about this topic, a couple of other projects deserve your special attention, like FiveThirtyEight’s story about endorsements in the U.S. presidential primaries, and The Guardian’s visual breakdown of what the world’s population perceives as the top global threats. Climate change leads the way, followed by global economic instability and Isis.
