An Ocean on Pluto?

Evidence is mounting that an ocean spanning at least 100 kilometres may exist beneath the shell of the dwarf planet Pluto, according to a study led by geologist Brandon John of Brown University, in Providence, Rhode Island.

Assisted by NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft that flew past Pluto recently, thermal models also suggest the ocean likely has a salt content similar to the Dead Sea.
