Planetary scientists at Johns Hopkins University and NASA are quite happy...

(Crowd) "Three, two, one! Whooooo!"

New Horizons is now within 8,000 miles of Pluto. That's the closest it will get and that's three billion millions from earth.

It's lead scientists is Dr. Alan Stern...

(Stern) "We have completed the initial reconnaissance of the solar system... An endeavor started under President Kennedy more than 50 years ago, continuing to today under President Obama. It's really historic what the United States has done."

An image beamed back just a couple days ago shows Pluto has some sort of geological formation on its surface, in the perfect shape of a heart.
