Plutonian & Ultima Thule
On New Years Day, Jan. 1, 2019, the New Horizons Probe
spacecraft flew by Kuiper Belt object, Ultima Thule.
The probe is over 4 billion miles away, and
travelling at 31,000 miles per hour!
OSU Club member Dr. Willie Theunissen at the OSU Electroscience Lab, 2005, with Sifu Grigsby and the New Horizons Probe antenna.
More information on the New Horizons antenna work done at OSU:
At the 2005 USSA Shuai Chiao Nationals tournament Willie was a silver medalist.
The New Horizons Probe had flown by Pluto on July 14th, 2015
11,000 foot high ice mountains on Pluto
Three and a half years after the encounter with Pluto, the first photos
of Ultima Thule, an object too small to be a planet and in a primordial
state, show great promise for the science to come:
Congratulations to Willie and the many amazing teams of people who worked on this mission for over thirty years!
