About this book

The Kuiper belt is one of the most exciting regions for exploration and scientific research in planetary science. In Icy Worlds at the Edge of the Solar System, a series of chapter-length essays will each focus on an important aspect of our growing understanding of the Kuiper Belt. The book will be written with aesthetics as the primary driver rather than a more didactic pedagogy, describing basic concepts through the use of colorful analogies and metaphors before introducing the unsolved and intriguing questions that motivate researchers.

The discovery of a vast, complex and dynamic ensemble of small icy planetoids orbiting beyond Neptune at the frigid fringe of our solar system is responsible for startling revelations about the first half-billion years of solar system history. This book details the latest results of those discoveries in an eclectic selection of essays focusing on important aspects of our growing understanding of the Kuiper Belt.

Contents

The New Worlds: a modern voyage of exploration.- Terminal Moraine.- Technicolor.- A Fairy-Tale Beginning.- One is the Loneliest Number.- A Rose is a Rose is a Rose.
