TPO (trans-Plutonian objects) forever!


Just in time (but not mediatic enough) to distract us from the upcoming events here on earth.

I was thinking “TPO” in the headline was because everyone is currently obsessed with TP.

looks like he is of the same mind. he wrote TPO in the headline and throughout the article, despite writing out the full word as “trans-Neptunian objects” each time.
the only time it’s correct is in the quoted text.
very confusing, @garethb2


Brain fart. Fixed.

TNOs are any “minor planets” (asteroids, dwarf planets, and other similar objects) that orbit the Sun beyond Jupiter.

Shouldn’t that be Neptune?

That’s really going to mess with “My Very Eager Mother…”
