NASA’s New Horizons mission reveals Ultima Thule in 3-D


So far, the team has found no evidence of an atmosphere around Ultima Thule, which is to be expected. It is a small world, roughly the size of the city of Washington, D.C., and unlikely to have even a thin atmosphere like the one on Pluto. But scientists said they will continue to evaluate New Horizons data for any evidence of unexpected gases in Ultima Thule’s vicinity.
