    Mount Everest in the Himalayas, part of the Third Pole region of ice and snow

    The third-largest region of ice on the planet is located on the Tibetan Plateau and Himalaya-Hindu Kush mountains, also known as the Third Pole.

    Juno skims Jupiter’s pole in first orbital flyby

    Image returned from Juno of Jupiter's north pole

    NASA's Juno orbiter has made its first and nearest orbital flyby of Jupiter, snapping the closest close-up ever of giant planet's north pole. The unmanned probe made its 130,000 mph (208,000 km/h) approach at 6:44 am PDT (13:44 GMT) on Saturday, passing within 2,600 mi (4,200 km) of Jupiter's cloud tops in the first and closest of 36 flybys it will make during its mission. NASA expects to release some of the images it captured – including the highest-resolution images ever taken of the planet and the first of its north and south poles – over the next two weeks.
