Ultima Thule

In just a few short days, we'll be visiting a Kuiper Belt Object, nicknamed Ultima Thule.

This is courtesy of a extension to the mission for New Horizons 2015, the vehicle that brought us our first clear view of Pluto and Charon. Stay tuned to see what new wonders will be unveiled!

Afterwards? That depends on fuel, funding and power. And possible targets. Our vehicles have often proven more robust than we expect, so we night eventually see something even more "ultima"!
