Scientists left 'gobsmacked by astounding Pluto images'

Let's take a moment to realise how astounding the images of Pluto are.

All the scientists I have spoken to are just gobsmacked.

The pictures were taken from the edge of our Solar System just 36 hours ago and yet we are looking at them as if we have taken them on a smartphone - that's how stunning they are.

Pluto mountains 'could be 11,000 feet-high'

New pictures of Pluto's surface show mountains that are at least 11,000 feet (3,352 metres) high, NASA scientists say.

The space agency released a video allowing people to "zoom into Pluto" to discover the terrain.
