Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was pleasantly surprised at the readability and high average quality of the contributions to this edited volume of current research in what is now called the Trans Neptunian solar system. This theorized region of the solar system was established empirically only a few decades ago with discovery of Edgeworth Kuiper Belt objects although long period comets were known to be from distant reaches as well. The book also covers in detail some objects currently within Neptune's orbit such as the Centaurs since they are believed to have originated in the Edgeworth Kuiper belt or other areas of the trans Neptunian region.
Obviously research is still in beginning stages on this difficult to study region because the objects are relatively small and faint. Nevertheless it is amazing how much solid thinking has been devoted to analyzing and modeling the composition, evolution and orbital dynamics of these planetoids. If you have any interest in this topic, this book can be highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
This book is the 35th volume of an unparalleled series of books
covering all aspects of Solar System science. Its topic is a
region in space which - except being passed by long period comets -
only twenty years ago was still considered to be empty. Today
it is obvious that it represents one of the most interesting
locations at planetary distances, as it can be termed the interface
between our home, the Solar System, and the distant stars in the
Galaxy. Matching the high standards of the previous volumes of
the Space Science Series the authors and editors present an
encompassing and comprehensive overview of all relevant aspects.
Therefore the objects of this region and their properties, as well
as their relationship to other comparable bodies and processes closer
or even more distant to the sun are presented to the reader in a most
beneficial manner.
