Images taken by NASA’s new horizons probe show that Pluto seems to have snow capped peaks, but this is not the case. < / P > < p > when the New Horizons spacecraft flew over this frozen world in 2015, it took some really amazing images along the way. These images have been studied for many years, but they are still revealing the secrets of the dwarf planet. Recently, researchers have revealed a particularly interesting feature they can find in images. At first, researchers seemed to analyze Pluto’s snow covered peaks more quickly, but they didn’t think Pluto’s snow covered peaks existed. < / P > < p > in a study published in the journal Nature communications, researchers explained that frost at the top of Pluto’s peaks was caused by a strange atmospheric process. However, the “Snow” is actually methane frost accumulated on the mountain peaks, rather than precipitation falling from the sky. < / P > < p > “Pluto is covered by numerous deposits of methane, either diluted in nitrogen or methane rich ice,” the researchers wrote. “In Pluto’s dark equatorial region, bright ice with methane was observed covering the crater’s edge and wall and on the top of the mountain, similar to the spectacular view of snow mountains on land. However, the source of these sediments remains a mystery. Here we report that they are made of methane rich ice < / P > < p > researchers believe that methane is not actually accumulated through a process that produces precipitation, as we see on earth, but condenses near the top of the mountain, producing a beauty similar to that we see when we watch the snow on the top of the mountain on our own planet. < / P > < p > the researchers pointed out that the heat distribution of Pluto’s atmosphere is basically opposite to that of the earth. On earth, the warmest air is often near the surface of the earth. In Pluto’s case, on the contrary, the sun’s distant rays make the atmosphere warmer than the ground. Methane is more concentrated at high altitudes. When warm gases come into contact with cold mountain peaks, they freeze and form a “snow capped” appearance.
