The discoverer of the comet ISON at Baltkom

Thanks to the flight to Pluto the earthlings had the opportunity to see a completely unknown distant world, but the planet itself asked scientists puzzle that requires resolution, said in an interview with radio Baltkom, the Russian astronomer who discovered the brightest comet of the decade ISON Artem Novichonok.

“We, first of all NASA employees,as well as all humans, had the opportunity to see a completely unknown distant world located on the outskirts of the solar system and he was totally not as what we expected. This world presents a lot of surprises and much more when the device will reset all data”, – said the scientist.

“First of all we are talking about data relating to the formation of the solar system in General and the formation of those distant objects, one of which is Pluto. Learning of this mission, we see a completely unusual structure, we see that the surface of Pluto and its satellite Charon are very young, suddenly, their bodies are very small, cold, much less the Earth and explain this geological activity is quite young mountains, the age of which children on the part of the solar system is very young, the plains are also very young, completely devoid of craters. All of these processes obyasnite does not work. That is, Pluto immediately asked scientists the mission of the mystery, which has not been resolved and which requires a permit. Was expecting to see an old, much criteriaand surface. And saw something of the young, where there are active geological processes, which in the standard model we can’t explain now,” said Artem Novichonok.

The astronomer believes that the New Horizons mission is quite unique, the unit flew for 10 years and transmits the data signal over a few hours, at this distance the spacecraft celestial body not yet Photographed. “Of course, we see that study and other celestial bodies are very popular in this regard continues to be Mars, the Geology of which becomes a serious branch of science, which is very well researched and a work in progress, it is also planned the delivery of asteroid to lunar orbit and landing of the astronauts on it, that is of course a breakthrough is observed, we live in very interesting times in the coming years will witness no less interesting results,” said the Novichonok.

As reported, the space probe New Horizons on July 14 at speed about 14 km/h. close to the planet Pluto on the minimum distance — 12.5 thousand kilometers. According to scientists, this day will go down in history as the day when humanity has reached one of the remotest planets of our Solar system – Pluto.

NASA experts have published a series of mysterious Photos and video of Pluto. which is transmitted to Earth space probe. The picture shows the channels and canyons on the surface of the dwarf planet. In addition, in the Photo it seems that those curves on Pluto resemble the shape of the human heart.

A space probe launched into space 19 January 2006, its mission is designed for 15-17 years.
