    Much of the surface of Pluto consists of high-albedo regions covered to an unknown depth by fl-N2 contaminated with CI--I4,CO, and other molecules. A portion of the exposed surface appears to consist of solid HzO. The remainder is covered by lower albedo material of unknown composition. The N2 ice may occur as polar caps of large extent, leaving ices and other solids of lower volatility in the equatorial regions. The low-albedo material found primarily in the equatorial regions may consist in… CONTINUE READING
