Nasa admits it was wrong about ‘Nazi dwarf planet’ Ultima Thule


Ultima Thule is the most controversial object in the solar system because it shares its name with the mythical homeplace of the Aryan race.

Now Nasa has admitted it was wrong about the infamous ‘Nazi dwarf planet’, which has probably triggered more people than any other heavenly body in the history of astronomy.

Up until now, it was believed the space rock was the shape of a snowman and consisted of two spherical ‘lobes’.

But analysis of pictures taken by the New Horizons probe has revealed the larger lobe, nicknamed Ultima, actually ‘resembles a giant pancake’ and the smaller lobe, Thule, is ‘shaped like a dented walnut’.

‘We had an impression of Ultima Thule based on the limited number of images returned in the days around the flyby, but seeing more data has significantly changed our view,’ said mission commander Alan Stern.

‘It would be closer to reality to say Ultima Thule’s shape is flatter, like a pancake.

‘But more importantly, the new images are creating scientific puzzles about how such an object could even be formed.

‘We’ve never seen something like this orbiting the Sun.’

Ultima Thule is the snappier title given to a space rock called (486958) 2014 MU69, which is the most distant object ever explored by humanity.

Critics say the ‘not OK’ name should have been scrapped as soon as its Nazi links were exposed (and you can read all about the wailing of the offended by clicking here).

A quick look at Wikipedia will tell you the phrase Ultima Thule was used by the Romans to refer to a northern land just outside the bounds of the known world.

But some of the crackpot occultists who inspired the Nazi party believed Ultima Thule was real and the actual birthplace of the Aryan race.

This claim came from a group called the Thule Society which was involved in the early stages of the Nazi party’s formation and had a membership list which included some of the murderous regime’s most famous names.
