We were wanderers, hunters and gatherers from the beginning. Slowly, we retired from the wild and relocated into towns and villages. We looked to the stars and sought navigation from them. We figured out that there are laws of nature, and they had to be figured out. A tool was made for discoveries, we called it science. Science was used to vanquish the impossible. The story of science, civilisation and cosmic evolution always blows be away. If only more children looked up to great scientists.

Look at all those asteroid impacts and wind eroded mountains

It looks like the face of a 13 year old boy just entering puberty

The fun thing about that picture is that there are 0 impact craters, only mountains, meaning the surface is relatively new. Planetary scientists were stumped by this image because Pluto has a very small mass and isn't orbiting a gas giant, and thus has no inner heat.
They estimated that this surface is only 100 million years old which is very young considering that every object in the solar system is 4.6 billion years old and something must be refurbishing the surface every now and then, but that should be impossible because is has no inner heat. And now they need to rewrite the laws of geology.

Those dents in the lower right look like asteroid impacts... it's improbable that despite being so close to a major asteroid belt that pluto was never struck at least once in 100 million years

For all we know though pluto might have some kind of wind that creates those mountains and craters out of a dusty surface.
User avatar #133 - casinoer (07/20/2015) [-]
Pluto's atmosphere is 100.000 times less dense than Earth's, any wind there would just be a few molecules whizzing by at 37 km/h and cannot create mountains or craters.
We know from other images that Pluto has craters, just surprisingly few of them. It's 4.6 billion years old and has probably had millions of asteroid impacts, but that area in the picture was refurbished by some mechanism in the last 100 million years or else it would have craters.

Those dents in the lower right are actually canyons as you can see in this 360° video.

Whoa.

Science is neat.

Is there any way that it does have a hot center, and we just didn't think it was possible?

Maybe because there's no winds, when pluto was first pulled into our solar system, or before, it had a hot center and that created mountain ranges and canyons.

If not, that's one big pile of questions for scientists to ask... force is necessary to move things, so what force moved/is moving pluto's surface? And what created pluto to begin with, since its surface is so very new? Why doesn't it have any astroid impacts despite being so close to a ton of asteroids? I have a feeling though that the answer is actually far simpler than a need to rewrite geology's laws. Maybe pluto passes just close enough to the sun, since its orbit is lopsided like most orbits, to have heated up and/or been exposed to solar winds. But I'm not a scientist and that might be impossible.

I think most of your questions will be answered in the coming months when all the data from the spacecraft arrives. You can see updates on their website: www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/newhorizons/main/index.html
These new images of Pluto's smaller moons were released just a few hours ago.
Keep looking up.

Science GIF comps? I LOVE IT. IT'S BRILLIANT.

I'm just a guy who want's to educate the world using radical gifs.
User avatar #3 to #2 - sciencexplain (09/19/2014) [-]
If you like to educate, you should add a scientific paragraph for each one that you can to help explain what is happening and why certain stuff can't be done and that. I explained one on your first content, so I think people would appreciate further information.
