Caption: Pluto's ice crust. Satellite image showing the heavily eroded water-ice crust of the dwarf planet Pluto. Here, the prominent 1.2-mile-high cliff at top (left to upper right) is part of a great canyon system that stretches for hundreds of miles across Pluto's northern hemisphere. Imaged by the Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) on NASA's New Horizons interplanetary space probe.
