New Photos from Pluto

NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft sends new images from Pluto. These images show the icy surface of the planet.

John Grunsfeld from NASA’s Science Mission Directorate says: “These close-up images, showing the diversity of terrain on Pluto, demonstrate the power of our robotic planetary explorers to return intriguing data to scientists back here on planet Earth.”
