Welcome everyone to Pluto’s 100 o’clock News, I’m your host, Keikoa Miller. Pluto’s atmosphere is currently composed 90.6% hydrogen and 9.4% helium. Days there last 153.6 Earth hours and the Sun is 1000 times dimmer than on Earth in case this is your first time with us. There is word of some average sized windstorms blowing on Pluto. We also have word that Pluto’s atmosphere is falling! We have our field reporter, Jake to see if these rumors are true. Jake?
Keikoa, these rumors are in fact true. We have gotten to the point where Pluto is far enough away from the Sun that it’s atmosphere is falling to the ground. It will take a few weeks before it all comes to the ground but, this is a once in a lifetime sight because Pluto takes 247.9 Earth years for one orbit, so the odds are, you will never see this again. As for the winds, there is an average wind storm moving in from the north west moving at about 175 miles per hour, but those are slowing down to about 100 m/h by 125 o’clock because the atmospheric pressure will equalize at about 1 microbar across the area. Back to you Keikoa.
Thank you Jake, now let’s head over to Ben in the Studio for our weekly forecast.
Thanks Keikoa. Starting off today there’s going to be pretty clear skies, maybe some atmosphere flurries mixed in there, but the crazy weather isn’t really going to kick in until around 82 o’clock this afternoon. We are going to be experiencing some mild windstorms with about 175 mile an hour winds, but as Jake said, it should slow down toward this evening, where this atmospheric snow will REALLY pick up. Be careful because those winds can really shift around some of the ice that is already on the ground. As we take a look at the rest of this week, we are going to have the atmosphere falling constantly as the temperatures drop further and further. We are going to have some major temperature shifts as we move further and further away from the sun. highs in the lower -380s but on Friday you really need to get your winter coats out because the temperatures are going to drop down into the lower -420s as we move further out. Taking a look at the radar, there’s going to be some mild atmosphere falling throughout today and tuesday, but it will really pick up until sometime next week, the ENTIRE atmosphere is on the ground, causing a thin sheet of ice to cover the surface of the planet. And after that there won’t really be much weather, obviously because the atmosphere will be completely frozen (party blower noise), So good luck getting out of your house, and believe me the roads will be slippery for the next 115 Earth years or so. So that’s gonna wrap it up, back to you Keikoa.
That wraps it up for today, thanks for watching! Good night.
