Space Fossils
The Kuiper Belt is a disc-shaped region of icy objects beyond the orbit of Neptune -- billions of kilometers from our sun. Pluto and Eris are the best known of these icy worlds. There may be hundreds more of these ice dwarfs out there. The Kuiper Belt and even more distant Oort Cloud are believed to be the home of comets that orbit our sun.

Q
Kelvin (K)

0 Kelvin is absolute zero; Water Ice melts at 273 K (= 00C = 320F); Water boils at 373 K (= 1000C = 2120F).

Kepler, Johannes (1571-1630)

German astronomer and mathematician. Considered a founder of modern astronomy, he formulated the famous three laws of planetary motion.

kilogram (kg)

= 1000 grams = 2.2 pounds, the mass of a liter of water.

kilometer (km)

= 1000 meters = 0.62 miles.

kinetic energy

The energy of motion; equivalent to one-half an objects mass multiplied by its velocity squared.
