Mission to Pluto cover

MISSION TO PLUTO: THE FIRST VISIT TO AN ICE DWARF AND THE KUIPER BELT (2017): In July of 2015 a robotic spacecraft reached Pluto after a nine-and-half-year journey. New Horizons is the first spacecraft mission to Pluto and it revealed Pluto's five moons as never before seen. Images from the mission show a reddish surface covered in ice-water mountains, moving glaciers, and hints of possible ice volcanoes and an underground ocean. Pluto is geologically alive and changing!
