Sheppardand Chad Trujillo, at Northern Arizona University, were awarded the 2019 Paolo Farinella Prize at the joint meeting of the European Planetary Science Congress (EPSC) of the Europlanet Society and the Division for Planetary Sciences (DPS) of the American Astronomical Society (AAS)for their outstanding collaborative work for the observational characterization of the Kuiper belt and the Neptune-Trojan population. They received the award and gave lectures on September 17, 2019, in Geneva. Sheppard and Trujillo have pushed the limits of what we know about the outer Solar System by discovering numerous distant objects beyond Neptunes orbit and revealing previously unknown details about the Kuiper belt.Their work suggests that there may be a yet-discovered giant planet that is affecting the orbits of distant objects.The annual Farinella prize was established in 2010. It was named for the Italian scientist Paolo Farinella and honors young researchers who are not older than Kuiper Belt 47, which is when Farinella died, who have achieved important results in one of Farinellas fields of work. The award is given out for different research areas each year. In 2019, the ninth award honored research into trans-Neptunian objects.Carnegies Scott Sheppard (left) and Northern Arizona Universitys Chad Trujillo (right) were awarded the 2019Paolo Farinella award honoring young researchers for their outstanding collaborative work for the observational characterization of the Kuiper belt and the Neptune-Trojan population.
