We learned a lot about Pluto from NASA’s New Horizons mission this month. And one important detail that the spacecraft sent back was a more accurate measurement of the dwarf planet: It is 2,370 kilometers (1,473 miles) in diameter.
But how can we put that size in perspective?
Pluto's diameter is 2,370km. Sydney to Perth is 3,274km. Adelaide to Darwin is 2,620km. Australia has beer though! https://t.co/ffA8cRZQra
