Watch Pluto's Stunning Discovery in 3D
One of the strangest landforms spotted by Nasa's New Horizons spacecraft when it flew past Pluto last July was the 'bladed' snakeskin terrain. Now, Nasa has revealed the stunning landscape in incredible detail - and now you can see it for yourself if using stereoscopic red-cyan anaglyph glasses.
The blades are the dominant feature of a broad area informally named Tartarus Dorsa. They align from north to south, reach hundreds of feet high and are typically spaced a few miles apart. This remarkable landform, unlike any other seen in our solar system, is perched on a much broader set of rounded ridges that are separated by flat valley floors.
