Hubble Photos of Pluto

Detailed photos have recently been released of Pluto (which was a planet of our solar system when I was in school) using the Hubble Space Telescope. "It took scientists four years and 20 computers to analyze and sharpen the pictures of the world - 3.5 billion miles from the sun" and results show that the colour of the planet has shifted, indicating the dynamism of Pluto and that it undergoes seasonal changes just like Earth. Pluto is due to be visited by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft in 2015.
