The latest series of photographs from NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft has revealed that parts of Pluto’s surface are covered in vast numbers of holes that have no obvious explanation.

The pits, which are only a few meters wide and up to tens of meters deep, may have been caused by sublimation – the process through which a solid turns in to a gas without going through a liquid stage – however the distribution of the holes continues to prove mysterious.

The lack of craters on Pluto and the fact that the surface is being constantly refreshed by new layers of ice makes the presence of these peculiar pits even more strange.
