Yeah -- I'm sure they will find a lot of new information about Pluto that they never knew or imagined before.
But that's what's so exciting about science and discovery. Scientist and researchers love finding things raises questions about what they thought was
true in nature. That's probably what gets them excited to go to work everyday -- i.e., the possibility of learning something brand new.
They have some ideas about Pluto based on the minimal evidence they have. They think the dark patches are hydrocarbon tars and the brighter splotches
are frozen Carbon Monoxide. They also think the atmosphere freezes out of the sky and "snows" back to the surface at the beginning of Pluto's
125-year winter (a season that Pluto is about to enter), only to sublimate again to form the atmosphere during its 125-year summer season.
Other wild speculation is that Pluto could have flowing liquid -- but that liquid could be rivers of liquid neon. One new mystery is that its moon
Charon seems to have a large dark patch hear its north pole.
We humans really don't know what we'll find, but it will probably surprise us (which is often completely normal when we learn about something which we
had no or limited knowledge of before).
