The Nasa spacecraft that explored Pluto has adjusted course as its next target looms.
New Horizons fired its thrusters late on Wednesday way out in our solar system’s so-called Kuiper Belt, or Twilight Zone.
That puts the spacecraft on track for a New Year’s Day flyby of a tiny, frigid world dubbed Ultima Thule.
The name comes from medieval maps and literature.
Lead scientist Alan Stern tweeted: “YEAH! Go Baby Go!”
New Horizons became the first spacecraft to visit Pluto in 2015.
Its next target is one billion miles beyond Pluto and a whopping four billion miles from us.
So 13 years after rocketing from Florida, New Horizons will break its own record for humanity’s most distant tour of a cosmic object.
