The spacecraft has observed how Proxima Centauri and Wolf 359 appear in different positions than when observed from Earth than deep space.
We saw the first black hole photo, many moon landings, the most distant asteroid ever imaged beyond Pluto among other spectacular wonders.
The sheer volume and range of mission in 2019 (till date) have been mighty exciting, setting the bar high for future ventures.
The images of Ultima Thule — taken just 6.5 minutes before its closest approach on 1 January, 2019.
The finding may spark new theories on how such primitive objects formed early in the solar system.
The small, icy rock is seen spinning like a propeller on its centre – like a tumbling snowman!
Since its 2006 launch, the mission has studies Pluto, its five moons & hundreds of Kuiper Belt objects.
The images show that Ultima Thule has a similar shape to a bowling pin, spinning end-over-end.
New Horizons will fly-by of the farthest object ever studied by a spacecraft on New Years Day.
Plutonium-powered New Horizons was launched in 2006 and is a days away from flying by Ultima Thule.
Ralph has made many discoveries since it first launched aboard the New Horizons spacecraft in 2006.
Pioneer 10 and Pioneer 11 probes are no longer functioning, but will eventually travel into interstellar space.
NASA's New Horizons spacecraft sets new record by capturing the farthest image from Earth by a spacecraft
The new images released by NASA on Thursday were captured by New Horizons when the spacecraft was more than 6.12 billion km away.
The next target of NASA's New Horizons mission, a Kuiper Belt Object named 2014 MU69 may have a tiny moon
Scientists were already excited to learn earlier this year that MU69 might be either peanut-shaped or even two objects orbiting one another.
Pluto's atmosphere could be colder than expected because of a cooling mechanism controlled by haze particles
The result is an atmospheric temperature of about minus 203 degrees Celsius, instead of the predicted minus 173 degrees Celsius.
You can now help give a new nickname to the next flyby target of NASA's New Horizons mission, 2014 MU69
The object has a rather mundane name, 2014 MU69 and NASA is asking for help in coming up with a more exciting name for the object.
The jagged geological ridges are found at the highest altitudes on Pluto's surface, near its equator, and can soar many hundreds of feet into the sky.
The Working Group for Planetary System Nomenclature (WGSPN) has officially named some of the more prominent surface features on the planet.
New data gathered on the target of the flyby suggest it could well be two bodies that are close together or even touching.
The observations will help scientists better understand the size, shape, orbit and environment around 2014 MU69.
