On Pluto there can be no human life.
The ocean that lies beneath the surface of Pluto is likely to contain only ammonia and salt. The presence of such minerals casts doubt on the existence of life, the exception can only be exotic microbes.
This is stated in the article of the journal Nature.
“Life can adapt to various habitats to a large number of salts or the abnormal temperature, but in such quantity of ammonia present in the ocean of Pluto, can only live exotic microbes. In other words, it is unlikely that there can be a host fish or octopus,” said William McKinnon of Washington University in St. Louis.
First flight through the Pluto was made by the New Horizons probe in 2015. It was then able to gather information about what is under the surface of the dwarf planet may be the ocean.
This is supported by not one fact: the surface of Pluto expands as it cools down, that says about turning underground water into ice.
Also the unusual shape and depth of the planet indicates that it is the ocean involved in her birth.
It is assumed that the composition and properties of water of Pluto can be very similar to the Dead sea of the Earth, but there are still live germs and bacteria that have adapted to the salty environment.
