NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft has delivered more detailed imagery of Pluto, showing a jumbled, broken terrain.
Described by scientists as a ‘bewildering variety of surface features’, the terrain is way more varied and complex than originally thought.
The images over the last few days have doubled the amount of Pluto’s surface viewed.
Scientist have reported possible dunes, nitrogen ice flows that apparently oozed out of mountainous regions onto plains, and even networks of valleys that may have been carved by material flowing over Pluto’s surface.
They also show large regions that display chaotically jumbled mountains reminiscent of disrupted terrains on Jupiter’s icy moon Europa.
There is even a fly-by video
