ancient collision in the Kuiper
Belt, the region of bodies found outside of our solar system. The massive impact
between a nearly Pluto-sized body and one half as large created a 'collisional family' of objects; this
is the first such family identified in the Kuiper Belt. The largest body produced may cross
Neptune's orbit in the distant future, but it's possible that smaller objects created by the smash-up
have already fallen into the inner solar system as comets."
