“The Soul of the Sky” by © Philip Sedgwick (2003)

Excerpts from his new book, exclusively for CRP

Phil Sedgwick, member of the CRP, provides us here with excerpts (47 pages!) from his new book “The Soul of the Sky” in which he tells us the story of the tantalizing discoveries of TNOs, Centaurs and other new planets within the Kuiper-belt and beyond. He gives insights into his fascinating interpretation of named and even yet unnamed TNOs, Centaurs (including Chiron, Pholus and Nessus), SDOs and even the big ones: Varuna, Ixion, Rhadamanthus, Chaos and Quaoar.
