Photo of the Day: A Tiny Little Piece of Pluto — In Hi-Res!


Here it is: the first high-res frame of Pluto from yesterday’s flyby. Apparently all the frames will be available on Friday, at which point we’ll have high-res imagery of the entire planet.

Yes, planet. Anyone want to take a look at this and still claim that Pluto is just a second-rate little dwarf? Come on. Grumpy is a dwarf. Pluto is a planet.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
