First Incredible Close-Up Image of Pluto Reveals Gigantic Ice Mountains!

Here they come now — the first incredible detailed images of the surface of Pluto. The image above was just published by NASA, and it shows an absolutely astounding landscape (to my eyes, anyway).

In a discovery that NASA is calling a “giant surprise,” New Horizons has found a range of youthful ice mountains rising as high as 11,000 feet above Pluto’s surface.

The mountains likely formed no more than 100 million years ago, which is extremely young compared to the 4.56-billion-year age
