Eric (erichamion) says:
You know how extremely hostile environments that we never thought could sustain life (like boiling geysers) keep turning out to have unique bacteria, and those discoveries fuel the hope that perhaps extraterrestrial life exists in unlikely places? At -30 C, it seems that northern Canada is one of those environments. If Speedy can live there, maybe life can exist on Jupiter's moons or on the dark side of Pluto.
Wayne (wayne) says:
I imagine all sorts of things live on Pluto's dark side, I don't recall too many flea dips for him.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:
Technically, Pluto doesn't have a dark side; it rotates in tidal lock with its moon, Charon. Also technically, the Moon doesn't have a "dark side" either; it has a far side that gets lit up for half a month.
If Pink Floyd teamed up with Edgar Rice Burroughs, they could write "Dark Side of Barsoom".
David Palmer (viadd) says:
With an axial tilt of 123 degrees, most of Pluto's surface area is within the (ant)arctic circles. Each pole stays in darkness for over a century.
Dark enough for you?
James Rice (jhrice) says:
I gotta spend 4 weeks in northern Alberta to get those photos, and *these* are the comments I get? Sheesh. *grin*
