Laurel, MD, Dec. 31, 2018: Astrophysicist Brian May was among the distinguished guests at the spectacular New Year’s Eve bash of NASA’s New Horizons Ultima Thule Flyby. What a way to ring in 2019! Dr. May even debuted a new original song — the aptly named "New Horizons" — at midnight to celebrate. "To me, it is the incredible newness of it," May, a New Horizons mission team member, told reporters before the flyby. "This is going way beyond where anyone has gone before, literally."
