Flyby Is in Full Swing
Want to follow the New Horizons mission at Ultima Thule, the most distant world ever visited by a spacecraft? Here are some places to check out the hot flyby action!
First, mission HQ is at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab. The good folks there are putting out info via their YouTube Channel. So, keep an eye on that.
Here’s a sample of one of the video series they’ve put together.
Second, consider checking out the news center for the mission. Keep in mind that the servers will be pretty busy the next few days, so be patient. You can access that info here and click on the Where to Watch link.
Also, it now turns out that NASA TV will be showing a live feed of mission activities. For a while there, it seemed like NASA TV wouldn’t be working. That’s because the agency is on shutdown due to some irrational political tantrum over an unneeded wall. But, something changed in the past 24 hours. Now the agency is being allowed to share the New Horizons science with the taxpaying public. So, check that out as you can.
