What Is Out There In The Solar System?

Gaia Data Release 3 has provided a survey of more than 150,000 solar system objects, all of which (except the Sun, 8 centaurs, and the eight planets) are reflected in the chart above. The chart arranges these objects by the number of them at each average distance from the Sun (in a logarithmic scale in number, and a broken linear scale in distance). NEO stands for "near Earth objects" and "TNO" stands for trans-Neptunian objects.
