New Horizons has obtained impressive new images of Pluto and its large moon Charon that highlight their compositional diversity. These are not actual color images of Pluto and Charon-they are shown here in exaggerated colors that make it easy to note the differences in surface material and features on each planetary body.Read more from Jhuapl
This image and similar ones are popular on Facebook today:
Yeah, I posted a similar one on the Live Story.
You might enjoy the Larry Niven short story I just posted too.
