Event Information:

We currently know of 2000 small bodies in the outer solar system called Kuiper Belt or Trans-Neptunian Objects (TNOs). This population provides crucial information about the formation of the solar system. In particular, there is a sub-population that is an untouched relic of solar system formation, giving us nearly-direct insights into planet formation.
