New Horizons' First Colour Photo of Pluto Is One Awe-Inspiring Blur

Briefly: So that's Pluto and its Texas-sized moon, Charon, from a distance of about 114 million kilometres. Not a bad shot all things considered. But the New Horizons probe, on its way closer right now, will be upping its photo-taking game in July. Then we'll get to see some actual surface features.
