Could There Be Life In Pluto's Ocean?

Pluto is thought to possess a subsurface ocean, which is not so much a sign of water as it is a tremendous clue that other dwarf planets in deep space also may contain similarly exotic oceans, naturally leading to the question of life, said one co-investigator with NASA's New Horizon mission to Pluto and the Kuiper Belt.

A liquid ocean lying deep beneath Pluto's frozen surface is the best explanation for features revealed by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft, according to a new analysis.

The flyby will create a landmark in our understanding of Pluto's atmosphere, geology, and other surface conditions and increase our understanding of what lies further on in the Kuiper Belt.The flyby will create a landmark in our understanding of Pluto's atmosphere, geology, and other surface conditions and increase our understanding of what lies further on in the Kuiper Belt.
