T is for Trans Neptunian Objects

Our solar system is pretty nifty and fun to study.  We have our sun and planets, and those planets are filled with such variety that they keep people studying for a lifetime.  Yet, there's more to our solar system than the planets that orbit our sun.  Trans Neptunian objects far outnumber the planets, and they inhabit the region beyond Neptune (hence their name).  These little icy worlds warrant our attention too.
