ANSWER from Bonnie Walters
on 9 September 2004:
Dr. Luu discovered the first Kuiper Belt Object (KBOs) with her colleague, David Jewitt, in 1992. She was very, very excited to make this discovery. They had searched for 5 years! Think of it... 5 years with no results to show. It took incredible patience and perserverence to keep on looking. People came up to them saying, "There's nothing out there, you're nuts to keep looking." Since then, at least 500 KBOs have been found.
Here are some links for information on
the Kuiper Belt. The first is David Jewitt's Kuiper Belt page:

Nine Planets for starting out any research:
