The world was congratulating NASA after its New Horizons spacecraft successfully passed space object Ultima Thule on 1 January some four billion miles from Earth. The spacecraft then began slowly relaying images of the body located in the Kuiper Belt beyond Pluto, back to Earth. And the photos were a surprise. The body is in fact two bodies conjoined making Ultima Thule look like a “snow man”.
