After Pluto comes 2014 MU69

Here's the simulation that created the animated GIF:

This animation includes synthetic Kupier Belt objects.  These are the white dots that do not move.  They are a model of the entire Kuiper Belt as modeled by the L7 Synthetic Model.  I'd like to acknowledge the following papers for the creation of this model:
 
 
  • Kavelaars et al., 2009, ‘The Canada France Ecliptic Plane Survey – L3 data release: the orbital structure of the Kuiper belt.’ AJ, 137, 4917
        
  • Petit et al (2010) ‘The Canada France Ecliptic Plane Survey – L7 data release: the orbital structure of the Kuiper belt’, AJ, in prep.
        
  • Gladman et al (2010) The Canada France Ecliptic Plane Survey – L7 data release: the resonant population of the Kuiper belt. AJ, in prep.
