This means visitors to the contentious planet will want to bring sunglasses - and maybe a few other items.
The temperature varies on Pluto from a balmy minus 369 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 223 Celsius) to a slightly chillier minus 387 degrees F (minus 232 degrees C) when it's furthest from the sun. So, you know, dress appropriately.
Also, be careful with that campfire: some of the ice on the Pluto is frozen methane.
Some of the mountains are comparable in size to the Rockies, so bring along your gear and stake your claim as the first person to scale an alien summit.

If you're a stargazer, you're in for an eyeful on Pluto, which has five moons: Charon, Styx, Nix, Kerberos and Hydra - all named after mythological beings from the Greek underworld. How metal is that?
The ice on Pluto is red, and we don't know why, so tourists hoping to unwind with a cocktail will want to bring some earth ice with them.
Your Skinny Clothes
Pluto is slimming! The force of gravity there is only one-fifteenth of Earth's, so someone weighing 150 pounds at home would only weigh about 10 pounds on Pluto. Nice.
