I do not think that Kuiper believed in a belt of comets out as far as 100 AU, generally just beyond Neptune, today it ends at about 42 AU where QB1 is, but more Important you have failed to list a more important name, Kenneth Edgeworth, a European who predicted that a band of comets would lie much farther out. These have been found and are the SDOs, Scattered Disc Orbs. I am Dr. Wm. Greig, retired Consilienst, and i know more about where these things should be than anyone. I hope this gets to ms. Ann Druyan. At least you did not mention that piece of junk formerly called pluto. I am at email@example.com, I need to get a shorter email address. More, later, if you reply.
You have forgotten to include a more important name than Kuiper, namely Kenneth Edgeworth a european who did in 1940s predict a much larger comet resercoir than Kuiper. The Kuiper belt ends at about 45 AU whereas Edgeworth's goes out much further to say 1500 AU, I am Dr. Wm. Greig, at
firstname.lastname@example.org There is a lot of nonsense in the astronomical world today. I am a consilienist, I have a background in astrophysics but i have a low opinion of astronomers who are such sticks in the mud about gravitation and their silly Oort cloud. Send this to Ann Druyan.
