Success! New Horizons calls home after Ultima Thule Flyby
NASA's New Horizons spacecraft successfully performed the furthest encounter of an object (Ultima Thule) in our solar system on January 1 at 12:33 a.m. The spacecraft called home after the flyby and reported everything was healthy. It will begin beaming back the science data over the next hours and days. We will post the latest images in the gallery section of the Pluto Safari app.
