The great equatorial ridge on Saturn's moon Iapetus is arguably the most perplexing landform in the solar system. The ridge is a mountain range up to 20 km tall and sitting on the equator of Iapetus, and explaining its creation is an unresolved challenge.
"The surface of Neptune's moon Triton is young and ice covered, with evidence for volcanic plains, as well as mounds and round pits built by icy lava flows. Its odd orbit led astronomers to suspect Triton might be Pluto's twin.
