New Horizons Space Probe: Pluto Gets the Meme Treatment

Historic NASA mission to Pluto inspires Twitter to go meme-crazy.

Pluto's complex geological surface, where a heart, whale and donut-shaped features have been spotted, has been turned into a Rorschach test of sorts, with some people even seeing the outline of Disney's Pluto on Pluto.

Pluto and its largest moon, Charon, which is the size of Texas, were turned into a smiley face.

Pluto was demoted to a dwarf planet in 2006, just months after the piano-sized New Horizons probe blasted off on its 3 billion mile trip to the edge of the solar system.

Speaking of that demotion, Captain James T. Kirk has some strong feelings about today's Pluto flyby.
