NASA releases image of Plutos north pole
27 February 2016 Current Affairs: NASA researchers have made yet another a startling discovery about the geology of Pluto, as a newly-released image captured by the New Horizons spacecraft has lead to the discovery of wide frozen canyons located near the dwarf planets north polar region.The enhanced color image, publicly unveiled by the US space agency Thursday in a statement, shows long canyons that run vertically along a portion of the region informally known as Lowell Regio. The widest of these canyons is roughly 45 miles (75 kilometers) wide and is located close to Plutos north pole, and is shaded yellow in one of the newly-released pictures.Running roughly parallel to that canyon are two others, one to the east and one to the west, that are colored green in the photograph. Each of these geological features are approximately 6 miles (10 km) wide.
