  • Abstract The largest Trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) represent an extremely diverse collection of primitive bodies in the outer solar system. The community typically refers to these objects as “dwarf planets, (DPs)” though the IAU acknowledges only four TNOs officially such as Pluto, Eris, Makemake, and Haumea. We present a list of 36 potential candidates for reclassification as DPs, namely candidate dwarf planets (CDPs), which cover a wide range of sizes, geometric albedos, surface colors, and… CONTINUE READING
