We had no idea what Pluto looked like until 2015 when the New Horizons spacecraft completed its flyby. It’s safe at this point to say that the former planet is a much more complex object than anyone dared expect. It has clouds, fields of nitrogen ice, and (surprisingly) a liquid water ocean. Scientists from the US and Japan think they’ve teased out the secrets of Pluto’s hidden water reservoir.
