The Icy Mountains of Pluto

 
Some compressed images are starting to arrive from Pluto.  This photo shows an area of mountains, probably composed of water ice.  Surprisingly unmarked by impact craters, the features must be fairly young, possibly less than 100 million years old.  They may still be geologically active, scientists speculate.
