It took nearly a decade, but the New Horizons probe finally made it to Pluto on Tuesday and the results are... seriously spectacular. Yes, Pluto was downgraded to "dwarf planet" status in 2006, but 10 years later the clearest images yet of the furthest planet (sorry, dwarf planet) in our solar system have space geeks stanning, and some calling for an upgrade.
This amazing video from NPR chronicles the hundreds of pictures snapped by New Horizons on its epic journey accompanied by science fiction writer Ray Bradbury's recitation of his "If Only We Had Taller Been" poem celebrating NASA's 1971 mission to Mars.
President Obama got in on the action too.
And NASA scientists have promised that today should bring even more incredible images, because, you know, it takes time to send photos 3 billion miles.
