DISTANCE BETWEEN PLUTO AND SUN : On an average, Pluto is a distance of 39.5 astronomical units, or Au, from the sun. It is about 40 times more distance from the sun than earth. Due to its elliptical orbit, Pluto is not at the same distance from the sun at all times. Pluto's nearest point to the sun is 29.7 AU.

DOES PLUTO HAS OXYGEN : Air clear : Pluto's eternal atmosphere. although billion of kilometers from the sun, fridge Pluto has earthly air ; an atmosphere composed mostly of nitrogen, the same gas that constitutes 78 percent of the air we breathe. ... Pluto is very far that it takes 248 year to complete or finished a single orbit.

CAN WE LIVE IN PLUTO : "We've never been to [PLUTO] or anything like that'"Planet's scientist Alan stern told If you live on Pluto now, it will take about 4.5 hours for your message to reach home.

HOW LONG IT TAKE TO REACH AT PLUTO : NASA'S New Horizon spacecraft to leave earth, launched in 2006. It crossed Jupiter's orbit the following year and is traveling about one million miles per day, but the spacecraft is still has 9.5 year to reach Pluto and its moons.

CHARON MOON OF PLUTO : Charon moon is also known as Pluto I, and it is the largest of the five known natural satellites of the dwarf planet Pluto. Charon moon has a mean radius of 606 km. Charon is the sixth largest trans-neptunian object after Pluto, Eris, haumea, makemake, and gonggong. The radius of Charon is 606 km, the orbital period id 153 hours, 

NIX MOON OF PLUTO : Nix moon is a natural  satellite of dwarf planet Pluto. It has a diameters of 49.8 km across its longest dimension. It was discovered along with Pluto's outermost moon hydra in the year 2005 on June 15, by the Pluto companion search team. The orbital period of this moon is 25 days and it was discovered by Marc Buie.

HYDRA MOON OF PLUTO : Moon hydra has a diameters of approximately 51 km cross its longest dimension. This moon is a natural satellite of Pluto. This moon is the second largest moon of dwarf planet Pluto. It is also discovered along with nix moon in the year 2005 on June 15. It is slightly larger than nix moon.
