Pluto's North Pole Is Surrounded By Frozen Canyons

Image Cache: New Horizon's flyby of Pluto has given scientists an unimaginable amount of data, considering it's previously only existed as a pixelated blob. But in addition to geological maps and real science, New Horizon has also given us some stunning photos. Browse through the cool photos, animations and diagrams in Gizmodo's Image Cache here.

The image above is a fake-colour shot of Pluto's North Pole. To give you an idea of scale, the bottom of the photo is 33,800km across, so the canyons and pits you can see are objectively huge.
