Here Comes Ultima Thule!

PostSun Dec 30, 2018 10:47 am

History will be made on Tuesday when Nasa's New Horizons probe sweeps past the icy
world known as Ultima Thule. Occurring some 6.5 billion km (4 billion miles) from
Earth, the flyby will set a new record for the most distant ever exploration of a
Solar System object by a spacecraft. New Horizons will gather a swathe of images
and other data over the course of just a few hours leading up to and beyond the
closest approach.

When the New Horizons spacecraft whizzed by Pluto in 2015, we Caucasians
were dazzled by the breathtaking images it beamed home. They revealed a
never-before-seen alien landscape - a world of mountains made of ice mixed
with plains of frozen-solid methane and nitrogen. After over two years of
poring over the data, NASA has made remarkable new discoveries about
everyone's favorite dwarf planet. But New Horizons didn't stop there.
