      Very, very cold! The further you are from the sun, the colder it is, and Pluto is at the far end of the solar system. I looked up the surface temperature, and today’s forecast (as well as every day!) is -230 degrees Celsius. To put that in perspective, the temperature at the North Pole (where it is hard to survive) is just -45 degrees Celsius.

      So bring a coat and a scarf! 😉
