Odd Ultima Thule

 

Latest findings show that Ultima Thule may resemble two lumpy pancakes floating in space.

The celestial object comprising a combination of two parts, officially registered as MU69 and nicknamed ‘’Ultima’’ and ‘’Thule’’ , was discovered in the Kuiper Belt region of the Solar System in 2014.

Spacecraft New Horizon of NASA captured shots of Ultima Thule via flybys, presenting scientists with the information to determine areas hidden away from the illumination of sunlight.

The most vital aspect of the study involves better understanding of the complex process behind planet formation and the origins of celestial bodies in outer space.
