Object: The Kuiper Belt
Location: Outermost Solar System
The Kuiper belt is the asteroid belt that is supposed to be the last object included in our solar system.
Spanning all around the circumference of the solar system, the Kuiper belt's orbit is about 290 earth years.
It is named after the astronomer 'Gerard Kuiper'. Discovered in 1951, by the large array telescopes in Mauna Kea, Hawaii, the Kuiper Belt came to notice through Pluto.
It mainly contains icy rocks, of relatively larger size and also, more dwarf planets as compared to the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
Its most popular unit has to be the dwarf planet, Pluto.
Pluto was ruled out of the list of the earlier 9 solar planets in the year 2006, when the IAU (International Astronomical Union) sought that it did not meet the 3rd criteria for the defined 3 criterion, for a body to be classified as a planet.
1- Should be in orbit around the sun
2- Should be massive enough to be rounded by its own gravity. (Reach the hydrostatic equilibrium stage itself)
3- Should have a clear neighbourhood.
