The Best Image Of Pluto Yet

Look closely, it even has a heart on it.
The Best Image Of Pluto Yet

This morning at about 7:49 a.m. The New Horizons spacecraft made its closest approach to Pluto. The craft which was launched in 2006 finally made it to it's destination and has sent back the best pictures ever taken of the dwarf "former" planet. The journey took 9 years as the probe traveled over 3 billion miles to finally reach its destination.

NASA had set up a live stream of the approach and the first thing every noticed was that Pluto has a heart. 

That statement confused me a little as I heard people talking about it. "Pluto has a heart" and all I could think was: "A heart of what? Like ice or something?" Of course they were talking about the heart shape you can see on the surface.

The internet is already buzzing about the news and in true internet fashion the memes have already begun rolling in.
