Pluto possibility of saving lives under the surface

Pluto may save the life beneath its surface. Physicists from the University of Manchester, Brian Cox, said that based on the observation New Horizon spacecraft passing near the dwarf planet last month.

Cox said information about Pluto that had been sent to Earth has given great hope Pluto is capable of supporting life. Pluto's surface is rich in mountains of ice, it is impossible for life to be there. But under the surface may keep the ocean warm enough for a flourishing life.

Cox says, "New Horizon" shows you possible ocean beneath the surface of Pluto, which means, if our understanding of life on Earth right, you can see the life there (Pluto).

Until now, not much is understood about the object to be kicked out of his position as a planet in 2006. Overall the data obtained from the New Horizon, only 5 percent are sent to Earth.

Next week, there will be more data is received. Although the data have yet to be sufficient to prove the existence of the ocean below the surface of Pluto, let alone the existence of life.

However, by looking at the moons around Jupiter and Saturn that has been shown to have subsurface oceans, the Pluto seas is very possible. Cox warned, though life may exist on Pluto, its shape may be very different from the Earth. Not that fish and marine plants there.

"What science tells us is that complex life is rare. We are physically very insignificant and may be very valuable," he said as quoted by The Independent on Monday, August 31, 2015. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | THE INDEPENDENT]
