According to NASA’s own mission page, the images have even stunned NASA’s scientists as they offer a close look at “Pluto’s majestic icy mountains, streams of frozen nitrogen and haunting low-lying hazes, but also for their strangely familiar, arctic look.”
We take a look at the pictures of Pluto revealed by NASA. The picture above was taken just 15 minutes after New Horizons’ closest approach to Pluto on July 14, 2015.
