Pluto's atmosphere
Quote:New Horizons has discovered a region of cold, dense ionized gas tens of thousands of miles beyond Pluto -- the planet’s atmosphere being stripped away by the solar wind and lost to space. Beginning an hour and half after closest approach, the Solar Wind Around Pluto (SWAP) instrument observed a cavity in the solar wind -- the outflow of electrically charged particles from the Sun -- between 48,000 miles (77,000 km) and 68,000 miles (109,000 km) downstream of Pluto. SWAP data revealed this cavity to be populated with nitrogen ions forming a “plasma tail” of undetermined structure and length extending behind the planet.

If Pluto is billions of years old shouldn't its atmosphere have all been lost a long time ago? The fact that it still has an atmosphere supports the belief that is was created only a few thousand years ago.

The information in ancient libraries came from real minds of real people. The far more complex information in cells came from the far more intelligent mind of God.

Laugh out load

Okay.... being totally NOT an astrophysics. ... there are heaps of explanations which would fit this information.

NONE of which would lead to the bizarre notion of such a short time span in regards to the age of the solar system.

Pablo, did you even read the OP, you liked it. :-)

Couldn't read the link...my old iPad doesn't like it. Angry

The earth is billions of years old and has an atmosphere.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Venus has an atmosphere. The gaseous planets have atmospheres. Mars has an atmosphere (not much of one).

There is literally nothing about the presence of an atmosphere on Pluto that hints at anything other than it being totally normal.
