Could there ever be life on Pluto?
Question Date: 2006-01-20
Answer 1:

Pluto is very cold on its surface. Deeper down it may warm up but for life AS WE KNOW IT it seems unlikely that there is life on Pluto. If there is, it would be very simple microbial life at some depth where liquid water may be present.
