Pluto's landscape so complex that NASA scientists don;t know how it got there..

The colour pictures show for the first time that the hazes are a bright blue.
Who would have expected a blue sky in the Kuiper Belt? It’s gorgeous,” said Alan Stern New Horizons principal investigator from Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), Boulder, Colorado, in a statement.

The blue in the picture allows scientists to judge how exactly it is made.

“That striking blue tint tells us about the size and composition of the haze particles,” said science team researcher Carly Howett, also of SwRI. “A blue sky often results from scattering of sunlight by very small particles. On Earth, those particles are very tiny nitrogen molecules. On Pluto they appear to be larger — but still relatively small — soot-like particles we call tholins.”

There are ETs already there. Wonder if I can find them saying that.

Almost a decade into its journey, the New Horizons probe is faltering. Why? Poised to make a close pass to peek at Pluto, the probe’s mission seems innocuous enough. If comet Rosetta housed an alien base that operated via radio signals, and the Ceres asteroid contains several well lit space ports, might Pluto likewise be home to aliens in the Service-to-Self? The Service-to-Self are forced to remain in 3rd density by their masters, as they do not do teamwork well and something akin to the movie The Fly occurs at times. Visitors from the Service-to-Other are adroit and slip into 4th density between work stints.

If radio signals are used by these aliens in the Service-to-Self, and if NASA’s New Horizons probe uses radio signals for communication with NASA back on Earth, is this an inherent conflict? Why would it not be? New Horizons is receiving radio signals from more than one source. Signals from an alien base on Pluto confused New Horizons, and the likelihood of NASA getting through to their probe without static and interference is slim. They might manage to fix New Horizons, only to find it quickly discombobulated again.

It's quite logical that life would be there. Water means oxygen, it's apparently got a magnetosphere as it's geologically active. A far more interesting place than any of the other planets, and they demoted it from planetary status.
Brilliant minds and the top of the food chain.

Yeah I know, right?

That is such a cool and unexpected pic. I've got it in my background.

It's actually a pretty phenomenal deal. We've been looking for earth II in all the wrong places.
