National Geographic reports, "In some regions, these mountains are as large as the Rockies but are still buoyant enough to rise high above denser nitrogen and carbon monoxide ices. Made of water ice, these big blocks of material are probably floating on a "sea" of nitrogen ice."
Other recent discoveries include ice volcanoes, a snakeskin-like landscape, blue skies and water ice.
