Haumea is already the only Kuiper Belt object known to be part of a collisional family--other chunks, besides the moons, are known to have been created when a large impactor, perhaps 500 kilometers in diameter, struck the once-larger dwarf planet in the distant past, Brown says.

Recent advances are addressed under a wide variety of topics including, orbital properties; nomenclature; taxonomy; physical characteristics such as sizes, composition, colours, shapes and rotations; forma tion processes and collisional evolution; the largest objects; binaries; atmospheres; links with Jupiter-family comets, planetary satellites and other solar system populations; extrasolar dust disks; laboratory studies; and prospects for the future including stellar occultations, NASA's Pluto--Kuiper Belt mission New Horizons due to arrive at Pluto in 2015, and future surveys.
Holdren's knowledge and involvement in fusion goes back to the early 1970s, when he published a paper "Analytic Approximation to Collisional Distribution in Mirror Plasmas" while working in the magnetic fusion energy program at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

The relative motions between adjacent plates give rise to earthquakes along the plate boundaries that include spreading oceanic ridges, converging subduction zones, collisional continental plate boundaries, and transform faults along which they shear past each other (Bird, 2003; Turcotte and Schubert, 2002; Cediel et al.
Within the Estonian basement post-orogenic (later than Svecofennian collisional processes) and anorogenic (independent of Svecofennian orogenic framework) magmatic rocks were recognized by drilling and from gravity and magnetic investigations back in the middle of the 20th century (Tikhomirov 1965; Bogatikov & Birkis 1973; Kuuspalu 1975; Puura et al.
High shear is typically applied today to create the small size droplets (anywhere in the range of 50-500 nm) and the combination of a surfactant and a low molecular weight, highly water insoluble costabilizer is used to maintain their stability against collisional and diffusional (Ostwald ripening) degradation.
