If you are a space fan, this is your day. NASA just released the first surface image of Pluto.
The photo is the closest photo of Pluto ever taken at about 7,800 miles. This is quite amazing, especially compared to the roughly 3 billion (3,000,000,000) miles New Horizons had to travel to get there.
Another interesting fact is that we did not see the photo as soon as it was taken. It took the transmission about 4.5 hours to get to earth.
This could also be the most expensive photo taken at roughly $700 million to build, equip and fly the probe.
