Technological advances in astronomy reflect differences in how we photographed Pluto in 1996, 2006 and 2015

Space and astronomy agencies have improved their instruments to explore the depths of the universe. An image of a planet like Pluto, taken through the lens of a telescope NASA and ESAIn 1996, the landscape is very different from those we can enjoy today.

from what you posted astronomy and spaceOn its website, the world first saw the surface of Pluto in 1996, thanks to the properties of this icon The Hubble Space Telescope,

At the time, about 26 years ago, the images were taken with the European Space Agency (ESA) faint object camera, the image was 100 pixels wide and showed interesting hints of brighter regions and darker.

When we appreciate the catch we only see a catch which, for those who do not know the scientific subject, has no detail to highlight, more than something inferior,

Even if it doesn’t look like it, this image has brought a lot to astronomy and science in general. However, 10 years later, Hubble allowed us to see two smaller moons in alignment with Pluto: Nix and Hydra (far right).

Pluto It now has five known moons, including its larger companion Charon (to the right of Pluto), and new Horizons Looking for more. Everyone has seen the progress of the registry and what. Thanks for downloading Hubble,

2015 has arrived and everything seen before is overtaken. thanks for the space probe new HorizonsThe pockmarked plains of Pluto adjoining the rugged highlands have been captured. Hubble managed to capture the bright, dark, ice and nitrogen regions in the latest images.

The James Webb Space Telescope will now be able to improve on what has already been obtained from the surface of Pluto and the rest of the planets in the solar system.
