The latest images suggest Pluto’s surface is much newer than Charon’s, even though the dwarf planet and it’s moon are the same age. Are there any theories in the works about the resurfacing process and it’s cause?

congrats! as someone going to be starting grad school for astronomy in several months, I have a lot of questions about how to approach the next 5+ years of my life and I'm already worried about the next steps after that. My two foremost concerns are 1. picking a good advisor. By good I mean in addition to being competent, is also a human and will care about my needs and emotional wellbeing and 2. picking a dissertation topic in a field that has longevity both intellectually and monetarily. Any advice regarding these?
