Discovery of the first retograde transneptunian object.

Information (Release date : July 16 2008).

We have discovered the first transneptunian (or Kuiper Belt) object which orbits the Sun with an orbital inclination larger than 90 degrees, in a survey far north of the ecliptic plane.
This extreme discovery points to a new understanding of where the Halley-type comets originate.
