NASA New Horizons proves to investigate something secretly 1 billion miles beyond Pluto.
It's called Ultima Thule, not MU69 2014 to the item, and the flyby will be held at 4:33 p.m. AEDT on Tuesday, New Year's Day.
Ultima Thule is the most remote thing that people have ever come to.
NASA TV and the University of Johns Hopkins will host video videos to the event.
NASA is about scratching air with nuclear power over the most distant humanity. And you can look at how comfortable the home is.
The name Ultima Thule (named "tool-ee"), or 2014 MU69, the object is a complete mystery for scientists. Researchers do not even know what the seal rock looks like, as it is 1 billion miles longer than Pluto. How many hills – about 20 miles away – Ultima Thule is too small and too long for a telescopan to be seen clearly.
"If we knew what to expect, we would not go to Ultima Thule. It's something we've never found before," said Alan Stern, head of The previous New Horizons mission, Business Insider. "This is the research that is about it."
Ultima Thule is considered to be a precious residue of the creation of the solar system, which allows images to be closely constructed and closely researched by New Horizons. explains how planets are built and promoted.
In what Stern announces to move "embankment", New Horizons will get closer to Ultima Thule – within 2,200 miles – at 12:33 a.m. US ET (4:33 p.m. AEDT) Tuesday, New Year's Day. The probe moves at around 32,200 mph.
On the way, the spacecraft – which lasted Pluto in July 2015 – will produce hundreds of pictures and measurements in a series co-ordinated.
Their first image should come to Wednesday (in Australia) and will be published the next day. You can see these first images through live video broadcasts.
But due to the 13-year sports transport constraints (the survey launched in 2006) and the 4 billion miles of distance, It could take up to two years to bring New Horizons back to the Earth.
As you can see live coverage on the Fly Ultima Thule
Johns Hopkins University's Laboratory Physics Applied, which is the NASA's New Horizons mission management, and hosting a series of live video broadcasts about the situation.
The divisions will be distributed through YouTube showcases from Monday to Thursday. NASA TV and NASA TV also broadcast departments, despite the closing of the government, with President Donald Trump over funding for a wall on the US-Mexico border, which put many NASA workers home.
"NASA will continue with the world with its achievements!" Jim Bridenstine, NASA administrator, tweeted on Thursday and announces NASA TV to stay on the air.
Ultima Thule's first broadcast is the news conference with Stern and other 6-month mission scientists. Tuesday.
At 4:02 p.m. AEDT will be on Tuesday, guitar and scientist Brian May, a song dedicated to the mission. Video coverage will continue by 4:33 p.m., the time New Horizons passes Ultima Thule.
Michael Buckley, a representative for the Active Physical Laboratory, said that science experts would learn a bit video feeding that their mission was successful. He said that live coverage should start on Tuesday around 1:30 a.m., and the "OK" signal from New Horizons should arrive at 2 a.m. Wednesday AEDT. A news conference will be followed at 3:30 a.m.
There will be ongoing conferences for considering the earliest close-ups and scientific results from the scheduled historic flyby for Wednesday and Thursday at 2 p.m. Northwest Asia (6 a.m. on Thursday morning and AEDT Friday).
