Ultima Thule - Cosmic Rock
The cosmic rock is called Ultima Thule, which means "beyond what is human to see." It is 4 billion miles above the earth. On New Years Day 2019, NASA's spacecraft New Horizons will do a fly by around it and start transmitting data to earth. It is the farthest any spacecraft has travelled into outer space.
