Ultima Thule Just two weeks after the New Horizons team started looking for second flyby target, they discovered the KBO known as Ultima Thule. With that discovery, the team changed the spacecraft’s trajectory to explore Ultima Thule, making it the farthest object ever visited on January 1, 2019. Image Courtesy of NASA/JHUAPL/SwRI
