Painting influenced by scientific discoveries has a long history we should explore some more one day here on Symbiartic. For now, here are a few works of #sciart that really stood out to me on Twitter, marking this historic event and the images from the NASA team and the New Horizons probe.

A parting sentiment from Christine Rueter:
