Spacecraft called New Horizonts, launched on January 19, 2006 on the way to Pluto, reached  the orbit of the dwarf planet in July of 2015 after a very long journey for about 9 years and five billion kilometers.

This spacecraft traveled with an astonishing speed of 16.21 kilometers per second, which is unimaginable for a body located on our planet.
Since then, the spacecraft began to take new photos and measurements to send data to Earth, a process that takes approximately two days to reach our planet.

With an diameter much smaller than our moon, Pluto has an atmosphere composed of
nitrogen and carbon monoxide, which denotes that it is a thin one.
Once received pictures, NASA’s scientists found some strange aspects related to the surface of Pluto.
In some of the pictures that NASA received from New Horizonts appear few traces on the surface of the planet,
traces that resemble those of huge snails.

Even though it’s theoretically impossible to find another form of life on this
planet, experts say that life can grow almost anywhere and anything is possible in our universe.

As we know, Pluto is so cold that ice there is stronger than the steel. That would mean if there were certain forms of life, they should be adapted to the very low temperatures that reach the minimum of -233 degrees Celsius (-387 Degrees F) due to its rocky surface and distance from the Sun.
The researchers say these unidentified objects on the surface of Pluto which look like snails shall be
actually huge blocks of ice, but can not explain the slipping of them, fact that produced these tracks.
Take a look at this picture.
