NASANew HorizonsPlutoMakes Statement

Heart shape closeup

Pluto's Heart-shaped featureNew Horizons takes a photo of Pluto from 768,000 km (476,000 miles) away showing a close-up view of the heart-shaped feature. The heart measures about 1,600 km (1,000 miles) across. The heart borders darker equatorial terrains, and the mottled terrain to its east (right) are complex. However, even at this resolution, much of the heart’s interior appears remarkably featureless—possibly a sign of ongoing geologic processes.

Wow! My prediction was that we would find something wonderful, and we did. This is proof that good things really do come in small packages.
