T minus 2 days until New Horizons’ arrival at Ultima Thule (2014 MU69). Ultima Thule is the first “trans-Neptunian object” to be visited by humans (space missions). Neptune is named after the Roman version of Poseidon, the god of Atlantis, thus Neptune’s astronomical symbol which is the trident. As I’ve been saying for months, we are crossing the threshold into the realm of Atlantis now. Such is the nature of this coming year kicking off with the “Atlantean sequence” of New Horizons/Ultima Thule and OSIRIS-REx/Bennu on New Year’s Eve/Day.
