Look This is the "End of the Earth" at a distance of 6.5 billion kilometers – Science Exploration – cnBeta.COM



On January 19, 2006, the New Horizon probe was launched, and on July 14, 2015, it flew close to Pluto, and then continued to travel deep into space, and now it has passed more than 4700 days.On January 2, 2019 Beijing time, at 1:33, it will fly over Ultima Thule, the Kuiper asteroid, which traveled only about 3,500 kilometers.

At 9:56 on December 24, "New Horizons" photographed the End of the Earth, and after about 12 hours the Earth received this photo (three pieces together):

At that time, the New Horizons were located at a distance of about 10 million kilometers from the ends of the Earth and about 6.5 billion kilometers from the Sun.

The Kuiper Belt is a hollow disk-shaped region with a dense celestial body near the ecliptic plane of Neptune's orbit (about 30 astronomical units from the Sun), which is also known as the third region of the Solar System and contains billions of celestial bodies.

Asteroid "End of the Earth" number 485968, astronomy called MU69 2014 and the romantic name "End of the Earth" is the result of a public vote, meaning to go beyond the known world.

Tianya Haijiao has a diameter of about 30 kilometers and an irregular shape. It was discovered in 2017 using shading as a contact binary system or a close binary system. The color is reddish, probably due to hydrocarbons. The solar system has been exposed for billions of years.

New Horizons have found a great “love” for Pluto. I do not know what surprises will be found in the "End of Earth"?
