Winning the Internet with Science, that’s what NASA did with this tweet about the PLANET Pluto (that’s right, we’re not letting Pluto go as planet number nine, science be danged).  They tweeted about a discovery about Pluto that it has blue skies and frozen water.  From USA Today:

“That striking blue tint tells us about the size and composition of the haze particles,” researcher Carly Howett, said in a statement. “A blue sky often results from scattering of sunlight by very small particles.”

…On Thursday, NASA also revealed that the probe spotted icy patches of red water on the planet’s surface. Researchers said the icy patches appeared most often in “bright red” areas. NASA New Horizons tweeted about the new discoveries and wrote “enjoy!”
