NASA Releases New Images of Pluto
Well, according to NASA, these may be the clearest close-ups of Pluto's surface humans see for decades.
The space agency's New Horizons spacecraft snapped these pictures in July, during its closest flyby ever of Pluto.
The black and white images show craters, mountains and glacial terrain along a strip some 50 miles wide. Scientists say the high resolution images are so clear that objects smaller than a football stadium can be clearly seen.
Although New Horizons sped past Pluto this past summer, NASA says it will take about a year to transfer all of the photos and data.
