New Horizons Pluto's surface from 48,000 miles

Here is a section of Pluto's southern hemisphere as photographed by New Horizons as is shot towards Pluto.  The detail is stunning.

Interestingly it looks like a close-up of a huge whales head complete with eye and barnacles.

This science is brilliant.  What we also know now is that should humans decide to explore space, there is a massive energy source at Pluto, like a huge filling station.

The question is where is the methane coming from, methane is usually a by product of life.
