How could they have selected Arrokoth as the target when the team controlling/developing/managing New Horizons went to great lengths to explain how Pluto was effectively a 6^2 pixel wide image even using the Hubble to view it? I guess I am confused as Arrokoth must have been all but impossible to see given that it is far smaller even than Pluto? Did I miss something?
