       Pluto's atmosphere composition is made mostly of nitrogen, but also has some methane.  It is very thin, and is not a gaseuos giant like all of the other 4 outer planets.  The atmosphere temperatures averages to about negative 300- 400 degrees fahenheit sometimes.  The temperature gets really cold because Pluto is very small and is very far from the sun.
