Another beautiful photo of Pluto was released this week along with news that the dwarf planet has blue skies and water ice. Incredible!

“Who would have expected a blue sky in the Kuiper Belt? It’s gorgeous,” said Alan Stern, New Horizons principal investigator, in a NASA release.

I certainly wouldn’t. And I’m no scientist.
