Haumea Rings- Thoughts?
« on: 10/12/2017 06:25 PM »
Just want to know your thoughts about the recent discovery of the Kuiper Belt body
Haumea's rings during the 2017 eclipse. I hope a probe will be sent there soon,
I am looking forward to more info about it and it's two moons.

To Mods: I'd suggest that this thread should be in the space science section here:

It is interesting that both Haumea and Chariklo have ring(s), considering how small they are.  Honestly don't know what to make of it, but I expect a mission to Chariklo will happen long before Haumea.

This article talks about both:
