Scientists believe a liquid ocean could be hiding beneath the surface of Sputnik Planitia, Pluto's icy "heart." That's according to a recent study published in the journal Nature, as well as recent images from the New Horizons spacecraft.

Anything is possible. Learn more about NASA's Pluto findings in the following videos.
