Kuiper Belt's ice cores

Beyond Neptune, there is a large disc of small objects, called the Kuiper Belt and beyond that is the Oort cloud, home of the comets. This artwork shows a section of Kuiper Belt, crowded with the icy cores of potential comets, and it will feature in the ESO Supernova exhibition "The living Universe".
