Context. Ragozzine & Brown presented a list of candidate members of the first collisional family to be found among the transNeptunian objects (TNOs), the one associated with (136108) Haumea (2003 EL61). Aims. We aim to identify which of the candidate members of the Haumea collisional family are true members, by searching for water ice on their surfaces. We also attempt to test the theory that the family members are made of almost pure water ice by using optical light-curves to constrain their…

Characterisation of candidate members of (136108) Haumea's family II. Follow-up observations
Context. From a dynamical analysis of the orbital elements of trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs), Ragozzine & Brown (2007, AJ, 134, 2160) reported a list of candidate members of the first collisional
Rotational properties of the Haumea family members and candidates: Short-term variability
Haumea is one of the most interesting and intriguing transneptunian objects (TNOs). It is a large, bright, fast rotator, and its spectrum indicates nearly pure water ice on the surface. It has at
Physical properties of the Haumea Family from Herschel
We present thermal observations and results for 10 objects that are dynamically associated with the large TNO, Haumea. The data were acquired under the “TNOs are Cool” Herschel Key Programme (T.
Near-infrared spatially resolved spectroscopy of (136108) Haumea's multiple system
The transneptunian region of the solar system is populated by a wide variety of icy bodies showing great diversity. The dwarf planet (136108) Haumea is among the largest TNOs and displays a highly

Context. The trans-Neptunian region of the Solar System is populated by a wide variety of icy bodies showing great diversity in orbital behavior, size, surface color, and composition. One can also
Modeling the Formation of the Family of the Dwarf Planet Haumea
The dwarf planet (136108) Haumea has an intriguing combination of unique physical properties: near-breakup spin, two regular satellites, and an unexpectedly compact family. While these properties

The dynamical evolution of dwarf planet (136108) Haumea’s collisional family: general properties and implications for the trans-Neptunian belt
Recently, the first collisional family was identified in the trans-Neptunian belt (otherwise known as the Edgeworth-Kuiper belt), providing direct evidence of the importance of collisions between
Size and albedo of Kuiper belt object 55636 from a stellar occultation
TLDR
Observations of a multi-chord stellar occultation by KBO 55636, which occurred on 9 October 2009, find that it has a mean radius of 143 ± 5 km and a geometric albedo of in the V photometric band, which establishes that KBO55636 is smaller than previously thought and that, like its parent body, it is highly reflective.
