NASA released historic photos from spacecraft New Horizons' nine-year, 3-billion-mile journey to Pluto earlier this week. The first photo revealed a previously unknown heart-shaped patch on the surface of the dwarf planet. NASA has now released a new high-resolution photo of Pluto's heart revealing huge icy mountaintops.
NASA also reported that though some of the icy mountains are as high as 11,000 feet, they are also less than 100 million years old and are very possibly still growing.
New Horizons traveled 3 billion miles and got a heart made of ice. So cold, Pluto. So cold.
