Pluto has a lot of volcanic activity?

The pictures of Pluto, up close have the astro physicists and geologists all in a tizzy. Pluto doesn’t have craters, so the theory is its surface is new, created by volcanic activity.

The world, the universe continues to surprise us.

We thought Pluto would be dead icy cold place–and it does have some ice mountains.

  1. Pluto’s high volcanic activity probably indicates a high abundance of actinide elements (Th, U, Pu) from the r-process (rapid neutron capture) in the outer layers of the supernova that birthed the solar system 5 Ga (five billion years) ago.

    Excess xenon-136 that the Galileo probe of Jupiter observed in 1995 and finally admitted in 1998, was likely produced by the same nuclear process.

    I will try to find time to post a link to the Jupiter data NASA tried to hide.

  2. Here, have an alternative view of things:

    Not saying that you have to believe any or all of it, but it does explain some anomalies. And the history of science is the history of heresies that proved correct after all.

    Just a thought.


  3. Here’s How Local Element Synthesis Was Obscured

    1972: Here are the experimental data that showed the presence of “strange xenon” (Xe-2) from synthesis of the chemical elements just before the primitive meteorites formed: [Hennecke, Sabu & Manuel, Nature 240 (1972) 99-101

    1975: Here are experimental data from the Allende meteorite showing that all primordial helium accompanied “strange xenon” (Xe-2) in the Allende meteorite and no primordial helium was associated with “normal xenon” (Xe-1) in the Allende meteorite.

    1977: Here is the debate published in Science to decide if “strange xenon” (Xe-2) was produced by:

    _ a.) A supernova explosion of the Sun
    _ b.) Fission of a superheavy element

    “Strange xenon, extinct superheavy elements, and the solar neutrino puzzle,” Science (7 January 1977)

    1995: Here are experimental data from the Galileo probe of Jupiter’s helium-rich atmosphere showing “strange xenon” (Xe-2) in Jupiter.

    1998: NASA retained the Galileo data until January 1998, when I confronted the NASA Administrator while he was being video taped by CSPAN news. See Dr. Goldin’s live explanation for holding the Jupiter xenon data near the end of this 1998 video.
