NASA’S New Horizons probe has narrowly avoided a fight with the smallest and most aggressive planet.
Pluto threatened to “bang out” the spacecraft as it hurtled within 12,500km of the hostile, chippy little world.
Pluto said: “If you come flying at me, I’m going to take action. This is a locals only galaxy.
“You come here taking pictures, chatting shit, acting like you’re all that, you can’t expect nothing else. We don’t want shiny metallic things here.
“I don’t know who fucking NASA are and I don’t give a shit neither.”
Mission controllers said the probe defused the situation by pretending to be lost and apologising profusely while retreating.
A NASA spokesman said: “Pluto is a nasty little bastard. It’s not as hard as it thinks it is but it’s still pretty hard.”
