I dislike the idea when they downgraded Pluto from a full-fledge planet to a dwarf planet sometime ago, as I felt that the respective planet classification to be very unfair and unwarranted indeed. Nevertheless, NASA did make several discoveries on this particular planet just recently, when their spacecraft has recently reached its destination, and sent home amazing photographs of the dwarf planet.

Some of the amazing discoveries sent from New Horizon's Long-Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) shows "geologic activity" on the surface. According to them, they observed flowing ice on a plain called Sputnik Planum. On the other hand, NASA commented that the ice flowed, which closely resembles the movement of glaciers back here on Earth – quite fascinating isn’t it?
