Pluto is like every other icy planet. The heat and pressure of being further down into the planet melts the ice. Seen in Titan, Europa, Enceladus, etc.


It is very possible to have the ocean in between the crust and core, suspending the core in an ocean and having it attached to the surface by rock formations. Maybe life?

well in the other bodies you said horn, they can support liquid water oceans because of the tidal forces with jupiter and saturn.
but pluto dont get such strong forces and is also colder. i dont think water ocean can be there. but maybe some other liquid

its not that big. but compare to pluto it is big. i really dont know if possible but i think the tidal forces between pluto and charon isnt high enough to form great big heat inside pluto. if there is heat inside pluto that can form water ocean.
its probably because of radioactive decay inside pluto core

Who said it has to be water? Maybe it is liquid nitrogen or ammonia.

And who said it can't be liquid helium, with that logic?

Well, Venus and Mars have liquid lava mantle. No strong tidal forces from moon or sun. Why icy bodies can't have liquid mantle (made of water of course)? If body is large enough, it may sustain large amount of primordial heat and radioactive elements in it's interior to keep mantle liquid. I don't like the term "ocean", because it leads to delusion. "Mantle" is more adequate term here.

Time to demote it to Dwarf Moon then. lol




Specs: Dell Inspiron 5547 (Laptop); 8 gigabytes of RAM; Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-4210U CPU @ 1.70GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.4GHz; Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit; Graphics: Intel® HD Graphics 4400 (That's all there is :( )

Dwarf moon isn't really a class officially used. I'd say dwarf moons are irregular and non rounded moons.

Fantastic lecture at the CfA Colloquium about the New Horizons mission.
