NASA La mejor imagen del polo norte de Plutón, muestra sus cañones helados

This ethereal scene captured by NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft tells yet another story of Pluto’s diversity of geological and compositional features—this time in an enhanced color image of the north polar area.

Only 15 minutes after its closest approach to Pluto on July 14, 2015, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft looked back toward the sun and captured this near-sunset view of the rugged, icy mountains and flat ice plains extending to Pluto’s horizon. The smooth expanse of the informally named icy plain Sputnik Planum (right) is flanked on the left by rugged mountains up to 11,000 feet (3,500 meters) high, including the informally named Norgay Montes in the foreground and Hillary Montes on the…

Pluto’s North Pole Is Streaked With Canyons - Enormous pits and frozen valleys straddle Pluto’s northern hemisphere. Known as the Lowell Regio (named after Percival Lowell, whose work led to Pluto’s discovery), Pluto’s north pole is streaked with enormous canyons that can be seen running vertically across the left side of the photo. The largest, which is highlighted in yellow in the annotated image below, is about 45 miles wide at its largest point and is surrounded by smaller canyons
