The Hillary Montes are mountains that reach 3.5 km above the surface of the dwarf planet Pluto. They are located northwest of Norgay Montes in the southwest border area of Sputnik Planitia in the south of Tombaugh Regio; the Hillary Montes were first viewed by the New Horizons spacecraft on 14 July 2015, announced by NASA on 24 July 2015. The mountains are named after Sir Edmund Hillary, New Zealand mountaineer, along with Nepalese Sherpa mountaineer, Tenzing Norgay, were the first climbers to reach the summit of the highest peak on Earth, Mount Everest, on 29 May 1953. On 7 September 2017, the name Hillary Montes was approved together with the names of Tombaugh Regio and twelve other nearby surface features; the Hillary Montes rise to 3.5 km high from base to about half as high as the Tenzing Montes. The Hillary Montes are similar in height to that of the peak of Mount Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan, above sea level.

The Unfortunate Mother

The Unfortunate Mother is a tragic play by Thomas Nabbes, first published in 1640 but not performed until 2013 400 years later. The play was published in 1640 "by J. O. for Daniell Frere... to be sold at the Signe of the Red Bull in Little Britaine", with a dedication to Richard Brathwaite, a stranger to him, whom he apologises for addressing. It is said to have been written as a rival to Shirley's ‘Politician,’ but was never acted, owing to the refusal of the actors to undertake the performance. Three friends prefixed commendatory verses by way of consoling the author for the slight thus cast upon him; the play is a bleak tragedy, beginning in the aftermath of the death of the prince and ending in the deaths of most of the characters. Its plot includes hidden identities, deceit, Machiavellian social climbing, murder and a duel. In the preface Nabbes specifies his intent to move away from the bombast and melodrama of popular drama, towards a subtler, more intellectual kind of theatre; the theatre companies did not share his ambition and he could find nobody to take charge of producing it.
