In that year 2019, NASA broke another record with its & # 39; New Horizons program coming to The longest thing ever searched by a man, and that's even longer than Pluto. This solid group is 6,500 million kilometers from Earth.
This is the Ultima Thule, a 35km asteroid to 15 km, and the name chosen by a public in the North American space organization group to identify Named to that time as the 2014 M69, which was found this year by Teileascop Space Hubble.
The first images, in black and white, give us an opportunity to show that the asteroid is a? shifting (we still do not know what type of speed it is) and its distribution investment is & # 39; look at Earth. Everything indicates that a shadow could be like the snowman, but it can not be led out that it is two things; move together. Last Thule It is marked by using ice and unchanged conditions from the birth of the Solar System, for 4,500 million years ago.
"The probe is in complete condition. We have just got the most afield"said Alice Bowman, head of his missionary work, between beauty and happiness at the Johns Hopkins University (SA) Laboratory of Applied Physics, where the control center is." Now the scientific data will begin to understand the foundation of our solar system, "he said.
Between a dispute and a shout of joy in the Laboratory of Applied Physics at the University of Johns Hopkins (SA), where the control center is.
According to NASA, the probe New Horizons, who examined Pluto in 2015, featured a fine picture of Ultima Thule, for 72 hours and 3,500 kilometers away, to recognize and discover the surface and shape where there is another atmosphere or other cobbler groups around.
The best quality images built by the ship have not yet been shown – some of those at the last moment are expected – since the six hour signals give the ground to reach and travel only one kilobyte every second. That's why the pictures are built nearby and in a good deal they will take months to come.
"The New Horizons have been polite as expected, make the most distant search in each history ", Alan Stern, chief of the mission and science researcher at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado (SA). "The data we have seen so far looks amazing and we are already learning about Ultima Thule."
Thule, the remote KBO (Kuiper Belt Theme), which looks like NASA's New Horizons appears to have a similar appearance.
Ultima Thule is located in one of the most remote parts of the Solar System, known as the Kuiper belt, in honor of the leading scientist who was in the 50s, Gerard Kuiper .
The New Horizons Declaration was launched in 2006. In 2015 it plummeted Pluto, the best planet, and revealed the complex geology of this world. Now, it is expected that the vessel will spend 20 months to Download the data captured when it passes near Ultima Thule. Its power allows it to work in the middle of thirty, and maybe it's possible to explore something else in the Kuiper zone.
