May 8, 2023 · Just like Jupiter dominates the main asteroid belt and Neptune sculpts the Kuiper Belt, astronomers believe that debris disks outside the solar system may be shaped by unseen planets. After the birth of the Sun, the icy materials that make up the Kuiper Belt migrated to the distant reaches of the Kuiper Belt region, or were slingshotted there after interactions with the planets as they formed and migrated to their current positions.
