The planet is quite odd however. Despite being such a cold planet, it has huge volcanic ranges, as well as a few extinct Volcanoes. Despite the negative one hundred degree Celsius weather, the volcano magma and lava still remains fresh and hot. This is a mystery few have been able to unravel. It appears as if the core of the planet itself is such hot that although the air itself is freezing, even briefly below the surface it becomes extraordinary hot. Science teams which came about thirty years ago, dug approximately 3 meters deep only to find that the temperature there was almost 50 degrees above Celsius. Further investigation proved that even deeper, at about 30 meters deep, it was pure magma.
This might explain the lack of liquid, as any liquid which touches the ground quickly evaporates as soon as it penetrates the sand. Yet it does not explain the ice caps. Some scientists came up with the hypothesis that underneath the glacier terrain is a large layer of hard rock, which explains why it does not melt the ice caps.
As for the volcanoes, some of them have died out, and melted down leaving slabs of rock located right in the middle of the volcanic terrain. It appears as if the volcanoes haven’t actually died, rather they grew so high above ground, that the air froze the magma quickly enough that it formed a cap upon the volcanoes. Some predictions say that in a few years the magma will grow so huge that it will blow the top off, causing massive destruction if there is anything in the area.
