"New Horizons" sends the first images of the dwarf planet.

It is the last frontier, the last planet (or planetoid) of the Solar System. & nbsp; Now, the NASA probe sends the first photos, taken from 12,000 kilometers away. & Nbsp; Culminate a mission started nine years ago. & Nbsp; The astrophysicist of the National Institute of Aerospace Technology, (INTA) David Barrado, believes that the photos will allow to better understand the composition, origin and relief of the dwarf planet. & Nbsp; In his opinion, space research will take years to repeat a milestone like this, the result of investments in astrophysics made a decade ago, and that the crisis has stopped in its tracks.
