Home Scientists from NASA’s New Horizons mission have spotted signs of long run-out landslides on Pluto’s largest moon, Charon. On this image of Charon’s informally named “Serenity Chasma,” from New Horizons’ Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI), arrows mark indications of landslide activity.

Scientists from NASA’s New Horizons mission have spotted signs of long run-out landslides on Pluto’s largest moon, Charon. This perspective view of a chasm on Charon uses stereo reconstruction of images taken by two cameras on New Horizons, supplemented by a “shape-from-shading” algorithm.
