5 Things To Bring On Your Vacation To Pluto

On Oct. 8, 2015 NASA released a color photo showing that Pluto has blue skies similar to our own. Check it out:

This means visitors to the contentious planet will want to bring sunglasses - and maybe a few other items.

Warm clothes

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.

Hiking equipment

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.

Telescopes... and Iron Maiden Albums

Ice Cubes

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.

So far, the doc has received excellent reviews from critics who find his frankness refreshing in an age when so many public figures are afraid to go off script and drop their filters. "Nobody does that anymore," Crosby told Civilized.
