  • Las imágenes tomadas por una nave espacial más lejos de la Tierra

¡Estás mirando la imagen más lejana de la Tierra jamás tomada!

El anterior poseedor del récord fue el Voyager 1 de la NASA. Se trata de nada menos que la fotografía más distante tomada, incluso más que la del Voyager 1.

La NASA explica que, al momento de tomar las históricas fotos, la New Horizons se encontraba más lejos de la Tierra que la sonda Voyager 1, aparato que en 1990 obtuvo las famosas imágenes del Sistema Solar y la Tierra conocidas como "Pale blue dot", a 6.060 millones de kilómetros. Dos horas más tarde, la cámara de largo alcance batió su propio récord capturando dos de los asteroides que orbitan en el Cinturón de Kuiper: 2012 HZ84 (a la izquierda) y 2012 HZ85 (a la derecha) en falso color.

La Administración Nacional de la Aeronáutica y del Espacio (NASA), compartió ayer imágenes captadas en diciembre por la sonda New Horizons que hicieron historia. Y esas imágenes pueden revelar un tipo muy extraño de roca espacial. Sin embargo, la sonda New Horizons lo ha conseguido, según La Vanguardia.

Lo sabremos con certeza cuando New Horizons se acerque, y afortunadamente sus cámaras permanecerán encendidas por un tiempo.

La sonda New Horizons está en buenas condiciones y actualmente se encuentra en hibernación. Los controladores de la misión en el Laboratorio de Física Aplicada Johns Hopkins, en Laurel, Maryland, sacarán a la nave espacial de su letargo electrónico el 4 de junio y comenzarán una serie de revisiones del sistema.
