The first high-quality image of Pluto was obtained from the New Horizons research station

Получен первый качественный снимок Плутона от исследовательской станции New Horizons (3 фото) As we wrote earlier, the New Horizons interplanetary station was supposed to be as close to Pluto as possible yesterday. And that happened. Already today, the National American Space Agency (NASA) received and published the first clear images of the dwarf planet. The picture was taken at a distance of 766 thousand km from the planet.

A total of 150 measurements will be made. Subsequent close-up and high-quality images of the object will be delivered to NASA in the coming days. NASA experts expect that flying Pluto, the spacecraft will be able to study and transmit information about Pluto’s largest satellite, Charon, and will also begin to explore other objects from the Kuiper Belt. The journey to Pluto of the New Horizons probe began in January 2006. For 9 years, he managed to overcome 4 billion 800 million km. Pluto lost the status of the 9th planet of the solar system in August 2006, a few months after the launch of the probe.
