Interesting Facts 
Mountains in Pluto's heart
The latest images from the New Horizons spacecraft have revealed another range of ice mountains on Pluto.The frozen peaks were found on the lower-left edge of the dwarf world's "heart" and are 1-1.5km-high.
They sit between a patch of icy, flat terrain, called Sputnik Planum, which scientists believe is less than 100 million years old, and a dark area dating to billions of years ago.
The newly spotted mountains are about 110km away from another range, which is now known as Norgay Montes, which appeared in some of the first images returned from last week's fly-by.
Those peaks are much more lofty: standing at about 3.3km-high, they rival the Rocky Mountains in size.- BBC
