Lakes on Pluto

I posted this in the space xploration thread, but Im not sure if anyone is looking at that. Just curious if anyone has noticed what to me look like lakes with ice flows on Pluto in this image

The usual gutless scientists say the troughs are filled with "some dark material" but to me it looks very much like liquid, maybe some kind of hydrocarbon or possibly liquid ammonia or nitrogen. There also appear to be brighter patches with clearly defined boundaries that look like they may fit together. Geometrically they look very much like an ice flow. Since they are white, they may actually be water ice, or some other ice, maybe CO2.

Either way looks really cool to me, any comments?

The largest lake on the right in the middle is sort of horseshoe or kidney shaped and has the most clear example of white ice flow looking material in it.

lakes on pluto

Sorry I don't have the image reference but the high res image of the heart region show what looks very much like lakes in the troughs. Probably liquid nitrogen or some hydrocarbon. Maybe both. The action from the nasa post of the image says some of the troughs are filled with some kind of "dark material". ha typical nasa scientist evasiveness. They are lakes!!!

Anyone else notice that? Fantastic!!!

New Horizons_Pluto_active tectonic geology?

http://www.universetoday.com/121317/plutos-time-to-shine-just-hours-away-a-guide-and-timetable/

PIA 19702 seems to show distinct planet wide separation and adjustment spreading of the brighter masses. This pattern follows the equatorial complex repeat patterns as a system of motion and adjusted surface features , giving an impression of plate tectonic type movement. Is the appearance a true planet wide system and does a primarily water ice surface qualify as a tectonic structure? Is the exposed surface actually ice as estimated recently?
Open to discuss any New Horizons aspects, and the Pluto/Charon moon group generally.

Oscillation deflation Tires for Rovers

Oscillation deflation tires would be effective for rover locomotion. Has NASA considered this approach yet? DE

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone had any info on the weight of martian soil. On average, Earthen soil is about 78 pounds per cubic foot. Compared to Martian soil, how heavy is Martian soil per cubic foot?

Thanks,

Jason
