Pluto is weird!

Pluto is weird!  The photo at right is one of the latest downlinked from New Horizons from its Pluto encounter earlier this year.  Those sure look like “canyons” formed by some kind of flowing liquid!  Pluto is just chock full of surprises, making the scientists on the project very happy. 
Also in today's Pluto-related news: a first photo (at left) of Kerberos (one of its moons), which isn't anything at all like what astronomers expected.

Researchers really hit the jackpot with the New Horizons probe...
