冥王星的蛇皮纹地貌

说明:

 在这片冥王星地貌里,有一个非正式名称为Tartarus Dorsa的山区绵延了约530公里。这幅最近才从新地平线号下载的影像,结合了在7月14日最近距附近时所记录的蓝、红和红外光影像数据。而分隔幽暗日与夜的明暗界线附近之阴影,让表面带着粗糙的鳞状纹理。


这幅遥远行星的动人影像,解析了宽度约1.3公里以上的构造。以古希腊神话冥界的某区为名之Tartarus Dorsa,在东边与汤博区为邻。

Pluto's Snakeskin Terrain

Explanation: A mountainous region informally known as Tartarus Dorsa sprawls some 530 kilometers (330 miles) across this Plutonian landscape. Recently downloaded from New Horizons, it combines blue, red, and infrared image data in an extended color view captured near the spacecraft's close approach to Pluto on July 14. Shadows near the terminator, the line between Pluto's dim day and night, emphasize a rough, scaly texture. The stunning image resolves details on the distant world about 1.3 kilometers (0.8 miles) across. Refering to a part of Hades in ancient Greek mythology, Tartarus Dorsa borders Tombaugh Regio to the east.
