Deep Ecliptic Survey:
The DES is designed to address
- What are the relative proportions of KBOs in resonant, non-resonant,
and scattered disk orbits?
- What is the spatial distribution of the KBOs?
- How can we increase understanding of circumstellar dust
- What is the distribution of KBO orbital inclinations?
- In addition, the survey will provide a significantly larger sample of
bright enough for their physical properties to be measured with existing
