Ultima Thule consists of two connected pieces, called Ultima and Thule, which at first was considered spherical. Due to this, the object initially even called “snowman.”
But in space nothing is as it seems. Finally new pictures of the ruined theory of forms “the snowman” and “skittles” and showed the real face of Ultima Thule.
After having carefully considered images, the researchers came to the conclusion that the object is similar to a mashed walnut with oldem. If one part of the Ultima Thule and from a distance may resemble a spherical object, slightly oblate, the second – almost completely flat.
