  • 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… CONTINUE READING
