New Horizons unveils a new world. Actually, it's 2 worlds smashed together.

New Horizons unveils a new world. Actually, it's 2 worlds smashed together.It's a new, weird world.  The deep space exploration craft New Horizons has sent back the first detailed images of an ancient world floating more than 4 billion miles from Earth, formally known as 2014 MU69. The clearest glimpse yet of MU69 shows that it's shaped like a snowman, with two roundish lobes that have been fused together.  It is by far the most distant world a spacecraft — and by extension humanity — has ever explored. "What this spacecraft and this team accomplished is unprecedented," Alan Stern, the principal investigator of the New Horizons mission, said from the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory on Wednesday. Image: jhapl/nasaNew Horizons — which previously revealed the majesty of Pluto in 2015 — swooped just 2,200 miles from the surface of MU69, which has been temporarily nicknamed Ultima Thule (the International Association of Astronomers will eventually endow MU69 with its official name). These images, though, are not of that absolute closest approach. Over the coming days and weeks, New Horizons will continue to transmit back more images that will reveal greater detail, and closer views of the object. "So stay tuned," Jeff Moore, the New Horizons geology team lead, said on Wednesday.  SEE ALSO: Queen rockstar unleashes badass space song about mysterious world of Ultima Thule MU69 is of profound interest to scientists. This world lies in a far-off group of objects, called the Kuiper Belt, that ring the solar system. Temperatures here approach absolute zero (minus 460 degrees Fahrenheit), which is as cold as it gets. Consequently, scientists suspect that these ancient objects have been preserved in relatively pristine condition since the beginnings of the still-forming solar system, some 4 billion years ago.  Seeing MU69, then, is like peering into the solar system's past.  Moore believes MU69 is composed of small icy bodies that are about 4.5 billion years old. Over time, these objects likely coalesced, and eventually two of these objects began to spiral close to one another. One day, they touched. Now, they're stuck together. The formation of MU69.Image: jhapl/nasaViewing MU69 is like looking at some of the "only remaining building blocks of the solar system" said Moore.  And as the New Horizons team suspected, this world is indeed reddish, and likely made up of different ices that have been subjected to space radiation for billions of years. "Now we can definitely say that Ultima Thule is red," said Carly Howett, a New Horizons planetary scientist. A reddish MU69.Image: jhapl/nasaAs the New Horizons team still awaits more detailed images of MU69, New Horizons will continue to journey deeper into space.  Perhaps scientists will spot another faint, distant object, and send New Horizons that way. The craft itself, while now 13 years old, won't hold them back "The spacecraft is in peak health," said Stern.  WATCH: Ever wonder how the universe might end?

Hey property bros, quit telling millennials to stop eating smashed avocado on toast

Hey property bros, quit telling millennials to stop eating smashed avocado on toastMillennials like avocado on toast and soy lattes and expensive rents and ASOS clothes by the bucketload. They pay for it all with their outrageous, disposable incomes. And when they reach adulthood, they only want to buy a three-bedroom house with ocean views on the best street in town.  In other words, they want to have the smashed avo and eat it too — and they'll eat all the avocado they please, goddamnit.  SEE ALSO: No, baby boomers, millennials aren't poor because they eat smashed avocado In recent months, it seems every smarmy rich dude and responsible adult in Australia — the place with the highest per capita consumption rate of ridiculous organic food types — has been preachin' high and low about the pure disrespect for money that Gen Y has shown in their young lives. The property market isn't out of control, they say. Your spending is out of control, they say.  Take rich dude, Tim Gurner.  tim gurner says i'll be able to afford a house if i stop eating smashed avo and drinking $ 4 coffees, why don't i believe him? pic.twitter.com/fdjiy1DQOg — Maddison Connaughton (@madconnaughton) May 15, 2017 The Australian property mogul took his victim blaming message to the masses on Australian current affairs show
60 Minutes on Sunday night and oh boyyyy was it one of the best examples yet of tsk-tsking the kids on their terrible life choices. Gurner is just 35 years old himself but guys, GURNER MADE GOOD DECISIONS. GURNER NEVER ATE AVO ON TOAST. GURNER IS YOUR RICH HERO. BOW DOWN TO KING GURNER.  "When I was trying to buy my first home, I wasn't buying smashed avocado for $ 19 and four coffees at $ 4 each," the wealthy lord said.  "We're at a point now where the expectations of younger people are very, very high. They want to eat out every day, they want travel to Europe every year. The people that own homes today worked very, very hard for it, saved every dollar, did everything they could to get up the property investment ladder." Let's not mention that an "uninhabitable hovel" can easily cost more than $ 1 million dollars in an Australian city. With prices like that, we're pretty certain that forgoing your daily macchiato isn't going to make you hella rich.  The issue with Gurner's very educational lesson is that he started his glorious empire with A$ 34,000 (US$ 25,190) from his grandfather, according to
Nine News. That's right, even Gurner needed a helping hand. It would take just 8,500 days without a $ 4 coffee to get that kind of head start. This "avocado is a poor life decision" speech isn't new. In fact, mentioning the words "millennial" and "avocado" in a sentence has been known to score anyone and everyone their 15 minutes of fame. In October, the internet pretty much broke in Australia after columnist Bernard Salt took aim at generation Y over their spending habits.  "I have seen young people order smashed avocado with crumbled feta on five-grain toasted bread at $ 22 a pop and more," he wrote for
The Australian.  "I can afford to eat this for lunch because I am middle aged and have raised my family … Twenty-two dollars several times a week could go towards a deposit on a house." It was an easy lesson in how to go viral and make a lot of people angry. But you know what? We're sick of you using the sad little lives of millennials to raise your profile. I'd much prefer to eat avocado on toast while sharing an apartment with 10 mates, if having money and five houses turns me into a smarmy rich dude that lectures my own generation on how to be a smarmy rich dude. Cough, Gurner, cough.  Now, excuse me while I pour myself a bath of champagne.  WATCH: This utensil will make cutting and slicing avocados much easier
