Merry Christmas Eve, everyone, and since it is a cold time of the year in the northern hemisphere perhaps this is a good time for this topic.
Triton's geysers have always fascinated me, particularly the dark material they emit. It seems likely that Pluto and the larger KBOs may be quite similar to Triton. I understand that the probable solvent involved is liquid nitrogen; what I am curious about is whether there have been any low-temp organic chemistry experiments beyond the famous thiolin work by Sagan in order to understand what might happen as far as molecular synthesis under these conditions.
Now, I'm not postulating critters, here (although who can say with absolute certainty what may or may not be possible? ) Cryogenic organic chemistry seems to be an emerging planetary science discipline, and it would be fascinating to hear what the latest & greatest thoughts are in this vein.
