Pluto at last- ten years and billions of miles
When I was a kid I learned about all the planets and was amazed at how cold the planet (now just a dwarf planet) Pluto was supposed to be. I imagined it to be mostly ice. It still just looks like a ball of colored chemicals, no atmosphere- not liquid water, rivers or oceans. Maybe there are craters like the Moon. Still it is interesting to see what the little planet actually looks like, after years of being just a white dot on some pictures taken from telescopes. -Otto
