There is bad news for Pluto. Unfortunately, Pluto's status was changed in 2006 from a planet to a dwarf planet because of its size. Now, Pluto has "bigger problems." Astronomers have carried out new studies on the planet's atmosphere. They used the terrestrial stellar occultation technique that provided information about density, pressure, and temperature of their atmosphere. What is a concealment and what is happening to the planet? Well, in short, the study concluded that Pluto can freeze and disappear by 2030.
The Measures, the Techniques of Concealment and the Effects
The Occultation technique has been possible when another object, such as a planet or even the moon, blocks light coming to another planet, for example the Earth, from a distant star, such as our Sun. This results in an eclipse solar.
From that idea, astronomers reconstructed the seasonal model of Pluto to find out what is happening if the planet does not receive sunlight. This is the time when problems begin. If Pluto is far from the Sun and in winter mode, the nitrogen in its atmosphere is freezing. Funny fact is that Pluto itself does not have a warmer atmosphere.
The planet has a temperature between 228 and 238 degrees Celsius negative. Those temperatures are low enough for nitrogen, and everything will freeze.
Pluto can freeze and disappear by 2030
In addition, the alarming fact of the discovery is that by 2030, the atmosphere will freeze. If this happens, everything will disappear. This will happen because of the change in atmospheric pressure. Pressure has increased in the last thirty years by three times. This fact will lead Pluto and its atmosphere to condense until nothing remains.
Finally, this can be a sad story for Pluto, and its surface will look different. If everything happens as the astronomers have discovered, we will see the brightest planet in the sky, because of the frozen nitrogen, the light will be reflected.
Karen and her husband live on a plot in British Columbia. They intend to grow and cultivate a significant portion of their food, maintaining a garden, keeping a herd of backyard chickens and foraging. They are also planning a move to a small cabin that they have built. Karen's academic background in nutrition made her care deeply about real food and look for ways to get it. Thus Anna's interest in yard gardening, chickens and goats, recycling and self-sufficiency was born.
