G day cobbers. NEW HORIZONS SCIENCE BRIEFING: NASA's New Horizons spacecraft successfully flew past Ultima Thule on Jan. 1st, giving researchers their first look at the mysterious object 4 billion miles from Earth. Just one problem: Ultima Thule is so far away, it takes 6 hours for radio signals to travel back to mission control. That's why the first high-res images are being revealed only today. Tune into NASA TV to watch a science briefing at 2 pm EST.
