Transcript of Pluto

Mission To Pluto
Does it have the Ability to support life?
Weather & Atmosphere

Pluto consists of a mixture of 70 percent rock
Pluto's geology consists of many different land features.
Force of Gravity
Pluto's Distance From the Sun
Pluto's Distance From Earth
Length of Days &Years
How Long Would it Take to Get There & How Fast?
9.5 years and we would have to travel a million miles a day
For our take off we be followed the same flight pattern as the space craft new horizons leaving the same place and the same date same every thing
at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida Space Launch Complex 41 on January 19, 2017 Launch Time: 2:00.00 p.m. EST

The escape velocity of earth is 11.2 km/s and the

and 30 percent water ice. The under composition of
the dwarf planet probably has a rocky core surrounded
by a mantle of water ice, with more exotic ices such as methane, carbon monoxide and nitrogen ice coating the surface.
There are cavi or cavus which is a hollow or steep-sided depression. There are also colles which is a low hill. Pluto
also has craters a large, bowl-shaped cavity in the
ground or on the surface. Dorsa which is a ridge.
Fossaeis almost like a ditch. Linea which is a elongated marking.
In conclusion we should go on the mission
Proposal to Compensate for Pluto's conditions
Charon appears to have a different surface composition than Pluto; rather than Pluto´s nitrogen ice surface

Charon has a water ice surface since it has water it is able to support life
Charon is also totally covered in nitrogen ice, with traces of some other
ices like methane and water the reddish areas you see on Pluto may be
Tholins - simple organic compounds there’s also some evidence of
cryovolcanism, ejecting material deeper under the surface, but that would consist mostly of ices as well
Pluto has 5 known natural satellite moons; Charon is
Pluto's largest moon
he surface of Pluto can range from -400°F to

ind speeds exceed 225 mph
oncealed between thick layers of ice, some scientists
-360°F; average surface temperature is -380°F

he pressure of Pluto was measured by New Horizons in

luto's atmosphere consists of mainly nitrogen with minor

gasses are vaporized from
Pluto takes 6.4 Earth days to

complete a full rotation

Pluto takes 247.7 Earth years to orbit

Pluto is a dwarf planet located
in the Kuiper belt

Pluto was discovered by Clyde Tombaugh of the
Lowell Observatory on Febuary 18, 1930

Pluto is named after the Greek god of the underworld
Pluto is the largest dwarf planet

Pluto is one third water
Pluto has only been visited by the New Horizon
spacecraft in 2006
Because Pluto's atmosphere is
microbes to live in order for survival
on Pluto, there would have to be
that is currently frozen on the
frozen solid, there is no room for
to Pluto. we need to find out more about this
unstudied planet. who knows what we will find
on this distant planet. yes it is a risk but we are
willing to go and study this in the name of
science! so please get on board with the blast off
escape velocity of Pluto is 1.2km/s. we will compensate
for the velocity by going 2,500mph to get off Pluto.
(that's a lot of gas)
3.67 billion miles, 29.7 AU, 4.44 billion km
40 AU
farthest distance apart- 4.67 billion miles, 7.5 billion km
closest distance together- 2.66 billion miles, 4.29 billion km

The rest of Pluto's moons remain unstudied and all photographs are blurry.
enough heat to melt the atmosphere
thank you
(clap or what ever now)
monoxide, all of these
their ices on Pluto's surface
More Fun Facts!
To compensate for Pluto's conditions we
will be sending a probe to Pluto and be
orbiting while collecting information from the
probe. we really do not know what to
get a good feel of it.
expect from this flight because this is so
unstudied and far away from earth to really
With Pluto we don't know
that it has any resources to
offer because of its unknowness
it has we are going to hope to
to find what type of resources it
find some on this trip!
