03 Aug Pluto: The Mysterious Dwarf Planet
Of course the Pluto fly-by has been one of the most talked-about news stories in a long time. Until this year, we have never seen photos of the dwarf planet that is 4.67 billion miles away. That’s nearly 30 times the distance from Earth to the sun. If you wanted to send a light signal to Pluto, it would take 4.6 hours for someone standing on Pluto to see it. Because of the vast distance between Pluto and our planet, it has remained shrouded in mystery.
