A newfound hunk of ice and rock beyond Neptune is larger than most and might contend for the title of the biggest object in the solar system besides the Sun, planets and moons.

The object is in a region of frozen, comet-like bodies called the Kuiper Belt. The discovery was announced today by the Minor Planet Center in Cambridge, Mass.

Impressive but i wouldn't call it a mini world because nothing probably lives on it hinting to me that it isn't a world and these iceballs are found everyday practicially.


Sorry
