New Horizons’ Top 10 Pluto Pics

Astronomy and microscopy are, or ought to be, closely related to us amateur practitioners, and I know a few of us are indeed "into" both. But whether you are, or are not (yet), trust me, you owe it to yourself to spend a few minutes in wonder at these pictures sent back from so far away.

I like how the scale is 20miles and here we are looking at 20 μm!
