  1. So far, no worlds larger than Pluto have been discovered in the outer solar system. If such worlds do exist, they may well be in much more distant orbits than Pluto, which will make finding them difficult. I would love to see citizen science programs like Zooniverse take on a search for them as a project in which interested amateurs can take part.

  2. I think it’s just a matter of time before we find worlds that are of Pluto’s size, or somewhat larger. Definitely there will be smaller ones found. But, something tells me that we’re nowhere near being done finding worlds “out there”. And, since none have been found “closer” than Pluto/Neptune’s orbit, they definitely will be more distant. Just how distant (as the mortician says) remains to be seen.
