Why Is Pluto Red Part 2

Ice Chemistry on Outer Solar System Bodies: Electron Radiolysis of N2-, CH4-, and Co-Containing Ices SUMMARY: In “Why Is Pluto Red Part 1” scientists beamed gases with UV photons; in this sequel, scientists beamed the same ratio of gases (nitrogen, methane, and carbon dioxide at a ratio of 100:1:1) with electrons. It’s thought that because… Continue reading Why Is Pluto Red Part 2

Why Is Pluto Red Part 1

Ice Chemistry on Outer Solar System Bodies: Carboxylic Acids, Nitriles, and Urea Detected in Refractory Residues Produced from the UV Photolysis of N2:CH4:CO-Containing Ices SUMMARY: Using a ratio of 100:1:1 of nitrogen gas, methane, and carbon monoxide at very low temperatures and pressure, scientists found that beaming the gas mixture with UV photons can produce… Continue reading Why Is Pluto Red Part 1
