Evidence of water found on Ultima Thule

Ultima Thule is located in the Kuiper Belt, beyond the orbit of Neptune. Located almost 6.5 billion kilometers from the Sun, The object is...
In this artistic rendering of the laser compression experiment, high power lasers focus on the surface of a diamond, generating a sequence of shock waves that propagate throughout the sample assembly (from left to right), simultaneously compressing and heating the initially liquid water sample, forcing it to freeze into the superionic water ice phase.
