Pluto's North Pole Is Surrounded By Frozen Canyons

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.

The image above is a fake-color shot of Pluto's North Pole. To give you an idea of scale, the bottom of the photo is 21,000 miles across, so the canyons and pits you can see are objectively huge.
