In this graphic you can see Pluto and and its moon Charon as they would appear if placed slightly above Earth's surface and viewed from a great distance. Recent measurements obtained by New Horizons indicate that Pluto has a diameter of 2,370 kilometers (1,473 miles), 18.5% that of Earth's, while Charon has a diameter of 1,208 kilometers (751 miles), 9.5% that of Earth's.

1) Hillary Clinton is a horrible campaigner to begin with and Sanders is simply out-campaigning her. He's drawing huge crowds which in turn draw grass roots sponsors, volunteers and the media. Sander's message of income inequality and his plans to remedy it are issues that Hillary Clinton simply hasn't touched.
2) Sanders has the backing of the 99% and the 99% want their Socialism. They all want free shit, to have their needs provided for and to be valued financially and Sanders is preaching to the choir....and that choir is growing. The unemployed, underemployed, unskilled, unwashed, freeloading, protesting, tree-hugging bleeding hearts and artists love the idea of taking from the rich to give to the poor. Bernie is speaking their language.
Hillary has a problem, the GOP has an opportunity and the US is in dire need of executive leadership.
New radar studies, which took advantage of a rare close encounter with an asteroid dubbed 2015 HM10, produced a collage of 42 images that spanned a total of 29 minutes (about 1.3 rotations of the asteroid). The images reveal a very elongated object that is only 80 meters across at its widest point.
