Comment[edit]

What exactly did Jane Luu do? What were her major accomplishments throughout her life?

Follow her link. Her article even links to her own web page.

Smiley?[edit]

Any reference for that claim? Because if that's true, thanks to the IAU not accepting that name. --Jyril 11:44, July 31, 2005 (UTC)

I talked to Jane Luu once. She told me the story of choosing Smiley but having it be rejected. Dioxinfreak (talk) 06:19, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
Cubewan, though a departure, would seem appropriate; or Cubewana, perhaps. Rothorpe (talk) 00:11, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

albedo[edit]

This article gives an unusually high albedo of 0.5-1.0, while the frech version fr:(15760) 1992 QB1 gives 0.07. Which one is correct? Martinwilke1980 10:54, 21 December 2005 (UTC)

The lower one is better. The sources on the net give it a low albedo. The 0.5-1.0 figure is probably just a typo with the decimal point.

I'll make a change here.

Wrong statement: a few dozen are classical Kuiper belt objects[edit]

Hello! This articles says that a few dozen are classical Kuiper belt objects. That is not correct. A paper by Gladman et al. (Nomenclature in the Outer Solar System) lists more than 270 such objects. As numbers will change in the future (as will the nomenclature and classification of specific TNOs), it is probably better to remove any specific numbers to prevent having to constantly update the article.
