Originally thought to be the realm of comets, over the past two decades we discovered that the Kuiper Belt region hosts also many other objects similar in size to Pluto (Figure 22).

This seems to imply that there are two completely different types of objects in the region.

Do you think that both types of objects formed in this region, or some of these may have migrated to this region at a later time? Briefly explain your reasoning.

Dysnomia
Nix
Namaka
Charon
Hydra
Hi'iaka
Pluto
Makemake
Eris
Haumea
Weywot
Vanth
