Last quote by Tanguy Bertrand

The equator is an enigma. There are no volatile ices, it's just the base of water ice covered in a kind of soot, this black material that's produced by the photolysis of the ice by UV rays. So there's a huge contrast between the dark zones of the equators and the brighter areas in the north, and this gigantic glacier of nitrogen ice that's the size of France.feedback

Tanguy Bertrand has most recently been quoted in an article called Ice mysteries of Pluto. Tanguy Bertrand said, “When New Horizons arrived at Pluto, we were struck by the topography. Why? Because you have mountains that reach up to four kilometres high, and you have this huge basin which is three kilometres below the average surface height. Those are enormous topographical differences for a small body like Pluto. It's a strange place, and so you really want to simulate this world, do experiments, try to understand how it works. Because there's a kind of climate, there's an atmosphere on Pluto, there are ices, but it's not at all like Earth.”. Tanguy Bertrand has been quoted a grand total of 2 times in 1 article.
