The distant universe snowman that NASA visited last month is not flat but rounded.
New photos of the New Horizons spacecraft provide a new perspective on a small universe of 4 billion miles (6.4 billion kilometers) away. Scientists say that the two leafed objects, nicknamed Ultima Thule, are flatter on the back than they originally thought. Pictures released last weekend – Pictures taken just before the closest to New Year's Day – Provides the outline of the sunny side.
From the front, the Ultima Thule is still like a snowman with two balls. But from the side, the snowman, like lemon and pie, stick together and eventually come to an end.
Ultima Thule is the farthest world we have ever explored.
