We are learning about a  whole new Pluto. Exciting
 
More Pluto mania, because Pluto is just full of surprises!! Much like the familiar "Red Planet" Mars, Pluto also has a reddish brown color. On Mars, the red comes from iron oxide, or "rust". But on Pluto, it comes from hydrocarbon formed by cosmic rays and UV light interacting with the methane in its atmosphere. 

Read more here, or check the "news" section of your Pluto Safari app: http://app.plutosafari.com/articles/news/07_03_redpluto.html

Extra second on Tuesday!

To quote Gandalf, "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us," Use this extra second wisely, my friends. 
 
The day will officially be a bit longer than usual on Tuesday. An extra second, or “leap” second, will be added. Learn why: http://go.nasa.gov/1Cz8fEa

" New color images from NASA's New Horizons spacecraft show two very different faces of the mysterious dwarf planet, one with a series of intriguing spots along the equator that are evenly spaced. Each of the spots is about 300 miles in diameter, with a surface area that's roughly the size of the state of Missouri. "

+Google+  rant incoming.
Mostly about photo handling.
1) Still hate that Google+ mishandles and wrecks peoples images on the header of their profile page. Stop doubling and blurring it and making it look like part of the real photo. Not cool. You had it right before.
2) Google+ never handled albums well. It had immense scrolling to get to the one you wanted. But now, it's even worse, they have removed the album tab and merged them all. So albums are now mixed with non-album stuff and dated posts. Date stuff does not equal an album! It just doesn't.
3) I noticed that they have taken away the ability to create a post from the upper-right from wherever you are on Google+. That was a good feature. Maybe I am writing based on something I am reading.It was nice and convenient. Thanks for taking convenience away, Google.
Rant over
