NASA just released the sharpest pictures of Pluto yet

You've likely already seen pictures from the New Horizons' Pluto flyby in July, but the images NASA released Friday are on another level entirely. These uncompressed images, taken about 10,000 miles above the icy dwarf planet, are the first batch in a series of the highest quality Pluto images the probe will send back, The Verge reports.

Some shots capture features on Pluto's surface smaller than half of a city block, according to NASA.

Take a look at Pluto's individual craters and mountains below, in shots NASA has edited together for your viewing pleasure. Julie Kliegman
