This global view of Jupiter's moon, Io, was obtained during the tenth orbit of Jupiter by NASA's Galileo spacecraft on 19 September 1997 at a range of more than 500,000 km (310,000 miles). Io (which is slightly larger than Earth's moon) is the most volcanically active body in the solar system. Colors are enhanced. Credit: NASA/JPL/University of Arizona

Dwarf planet Pluto has one giant moon, Charon. (I agree with the 45% of the astronomy culture, however, that Pluto is a planet).

For a brief few seconds, Space Shuttles Atlantis and Discovery were a few feet apart, a scene which will never be replicated.

NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft captured this high-resolution enhanced color view of Pluto on July 14, 2015. The image combines blue, red and infrared images. Pluto’s surface sports a remarkable range of subtle colors, enhanced in this view to a rainbow of pale blues, yellows, oranges, and deep reds. Many landforms have their own distinct colors, telling a complex geological and climatological story that scientists have only just begun to decode.
