NASA's New Horizons spacecraft captured images of Pluto in blue, red and infrared with its Ralph/Multispectral Visual Imaging Camera, and the combination of those created this spectacular image of the former planet.
4, Supplementary Figs 2 and 5) were selected for dating. The authors declare that they have no competing interests.Dark red triangles correspond to ages ranging from 2.0–1.2 Ma for sites of (1) Dmamisi suggests that it potentially records key events during this early phase of hominin history, such as the first hominin dispersals in Europe with Mode 1 industries (Fig. For more than two decades, Vallonnet Cave has been extensively cited in the literature as being synchronous with the Jaramillo paleomagnetic subchron.The ESR on calcite dating method used, however, is now controversial and has not been applied for some time.The results conclusively demonstrate that Vallonnet Cave is one of the oldest European prehistoric sites in France with early hominin occupations associated with an Epivillafranchian fauna.Combined with data from other archaeological sites, the new precise chronology suggests a widespread occupation the Northern Mediterranean to Southwestern Europe at ~1.2 Ma.
