According to a report by Geek.com, NASA’s New Horizons mission team published results from the first Kuiper Belt flyby, exploring the mysterious formation of Ultima Thule as well as details of its ancient past. The New Horizons Science Paper reportedly analyzed the first sets of data collected by the New Horizon’s New Year’s 2019 flyby of the Kuiper Belt object. Scientists reportedly discovered that Ultima Thule’s composition, development, and geology were more complex than expected. Ultima Thule’s surface reportedly features bright spots, hills, craters, and pits. The biggest depression on Ultima Thule is five miles in diameter, which the team reportedly nicknamed the Maryland crater, which they believe may have been created by an impact event.
