Explaining the origin of the orbits of 2000 CR105 (a = 230 AU, q = 44 AU) and 2003 VB12 (a = 531 AU, q = 74 AU, unofficially known as Sedna) is a major test for our understanding of the primordial evolution of the outer solar system. Gladman et al. have shown that 2000 CR105 could not have been a normal member of the scattered disk that had its perihelion distance increased by chaotic diffusion. The same conclusion also clearly applies to 2003 VB12. In this paper, we explore five seemingly… Expand
Towards an explanation of orbits in the extreme trans-Neptunian region: The effect of Milgromian dynamics
Milgromian dynamics (MD or MOND) uniquely predicts motion in a galaxy from the distribution of its stars and gas in a remarkable agreement with observations so far. In the solar system, MD predictsExpand
AN OUTER PLANET BEYOND PLUTO AND THE ORIGIN OF THE TRANS-NEPTUNIAN BELT ARCHITECTURE
Trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) are remnants of a collisionally and dynamically evolved planetesimal disk in the outer solar system. This complex structure, known as the trans-Neptunian belt (orExpand
The Generation of the Distant Kuiper Belt by Planet Nine from an Initially Broad Perihelion Distribution
The observation that the orbits of long-period Kuiper Belt objects are anomalously clustered in physical space has recently prompted the Planet Nine hypothesis - the proposed existence of a distantExpand
CONSEQUENCES of A DISTANT MASSIVE PLANET on the LARGE SEMIMAJOR AXIS TRANS-NEPTUNIAN OBJECTS
We explore the distant giant planet hypothesis by integrating the large semi-major axis, large pericenter Trans-Neptunian Objects (TNOs) in the presence of the giant planets and an external perturberExpand
Origin of the structure of the Kuiper belt during a dynamical instability in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune
Abstract We explore the origin and orbital evolution of the Kuiper belt in the framework of a recent model of the dynamical evolution of the giant planets, sometimes known as the Nice model. ThisExpand
How Sedna and family were captured in a close encounter with a solar sibling
The discovery of 2012VP113 initiated the debate on the origin of the Sedna family of planetesimals in orbit around the Sun. Sednitos roam the outer regions of the Solar System between theExpand
Regarding the Accretion of 2003 VB12 (Sedna) and Like Bodies in Distant Heliocentric Orbits
Recently, Brown et al. reported the exciting discovery of an ~800 km radius object, (90377) Sedna, on a distant, eccentric orbit centered at ~490 AU from the Sun. Here we undertake a first lookExpand
Peculiar orbits and asymmetries in extreme trans-Neptunian space
It is still an open question how the Solar system is structured beyond 100 au from the Sun. Our understanding of this vast region remains very limited and only recently we have become aware of theExpand
Perspectives on the distribution of orbits of distant Trans-Neptunian objects
Looking at the orbits of small bodies with large semimajor axes, we are compelled to see patterns. Some of these patterns are noted as strong indicators of new or hidden processes in the outer SolarExpand
Dynamical Evolution Induced by Planet Nine
The observational census of trans-Neptunian objects with semi-major axes greater than ~250 AU exhibits unexpected orbital structure that is most readily attributed to gravitational perturbationsExpand

The Existence of a Planet beyond 50 AU and the Orbital Distribution of the Classical Edgeworth–Kuiper-Belt Objects
Abstract We study the effects of a Mars-like planetoid with a semimajor axis at about ∼60 AU orbiting embedded in the primordial Edgeworth–Kuiper belt (EKB). The origin of such an object can beExpand
A new class of trans-Neptunian objects in high-eccentricity orbits
A symplectic integrator is used to study the evolution of high-eccentricity trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) over the age of the Solar system. For 26 objects, a few cloned orbits were integrated. WeExpand
Evidence for an Extended Scattered Disk
Abstract By telescopic tracking, we have established that the transneptunian object (TNO) 2000 CR 105 has a semimajor axis of 220±1 AU and perihelion distance of 44.14±0.02 AU, beyond the domainExpand
