NASA is renaming the Kuiper Belt case after controversy



NASA's nickname for the 2014 MU69 Cooper Belt Remote Object, Ultima Tule, was more than a little controversial. Although it has innocent meanings, Ultima Tule is also the term white supremacists used for a mythical homeland. However, the agency avoids that controversy. Only officially named the Arroot or Heaven subject in the Powhatan / Algonquian language. NASA received approval from the Powhatan tribe before making the change.
