Matt, do you work for NASA?

nasa is full of sh!t on this ultima thule stuff. Just compare the images of pluto. They are clearly hiding something, or refusing to release the data. I would say that there is a huge error with the spacecraft and it is totally dysfunctional and nobody wants to release that information yet. The images of thule are extremely poor. New horizons was sensitive enough to see craters and atmosphere on pluto, ceven clouds. We get this garbage for thule? Sorry, but there is just no way. It has been 30 days since the data transmission started downloading, so where is it all?

The images of pluto was taken from a distance of 11,000 miles (18,000 kilometers); It took New Horizons about 16 months to return all the data from the Pluto encounter. Getting all the Ultima Thule images on the ground will take even longer.

Data will be coming down through all of 2019 and most of 2020,

The closest point of the flyby, 2,200 miles above Ultima Thule’s surface,

So They flew 5 times closer to thule than pluto, and chose to not release the close approach flyby photo first. They need to release it, or at least half of it. IF a long duration government shutdown occurs, nobody gets this data.
