Ultima Thule is a Good Site to Place a N.A.S.A. Observatory

Ultima Thule is about the most distant object in the solar system that has been accessed by electronic explorers. It should receive an ensemble of optical, infrared and radio telescopes of modest size to observe the solar system inward and outwardly as early warning sentinels, scientific measurement outposts and communications relay stations. One might even place a reflecting dish for lasers on it. In theory that infrastructure could be placed with two or three landers and pay dividends for decades.
