pluto

Incredible snap of Pluto, a dwarf planet made of ice and rock, more than 4 billion miles away. This was taken by the New Horizons spacecraft on 13 July 2015. This marks the final frontier for a man-made spacecraft visit to the planets from the erstwhile solar system (before Pluto was reclassified to be a dwarf planet in 2005, along with other similar sized objects in the Kuiper belt orbiting the sun).
