The photographs mean the mysterious space object of Coype Belt 2014 MU69, called Ultima Thule, which already exists as more than a generic spot. Ultima Thule's latest photos boast 110 pixel resolution pixels, the finest shots of the strange body New Horizons have encountered. NASA's spacecraft shot the high resolution photos of Ultima Thule, a distant asteroid that means "beyond the familiar world," from a mere 4,109 kilometers.
NASA scientists already knew some details about Ultima Thule so far, such as its separate pancake
But these recently released high quality photos revealed previously unseen details.
These include circular stretches of terrain, deep spots, and other previously elusive details.
New horizons of NASA have come close to MU69 made its primary target, Pluto, thanks to the "unprecedented precision" in the calculations in several countries.
There was a real chance the New Horizons camera would miss the whole of Ultima Thule, according to the NASA chief investigator Dr Alan Stern. 1
Dr. Stern "Obtaining these images required us to know exactly where the little Ultima and the New Horizons are, as they passed each other at more than 32,000 km / h in the low light of the Kaiper belt, a billion miles from Pluto. much tougher observations than anything we had tried in our 2015 fly by Pluto. "
The Southeast Research Institute said:" Science, teams and naval teams have pinned her, and the result is a field day for our science team!
"Some of the details we now see on the surface of Ultima Thule are different from any other object that has ever been investigated." The Thule Thule is the farthest object that mankind has ever had a close look at, according to the Johns Hopkins University of Applied Physics Laboratory.
Ultima Thule is 20 miles long and has remained unchanged ever since. the early days of our salt
The first batch revealed that the asteroid appeared as lumps, deformed cosmic peanuts, made up of two touching boards called contact pairs.

More pictures show that the scale looks more like a pancake than a lump.
Photographs reveal strange light freckles and dark recesses of the asteroid Scientists are trying to understand.
John Spencer, deputy scientist at the NASA New Horizons project, says: "Whether these characteristics are craters produced by strikes, sublimation pits, collapsing, or something completely different, are discussed in our science
