Question 6:
Scientists have found other objects in the Kuiper Belt. Many of them have a moon. Do you think these objects may have more than one moon?
Answer:

You may think other Kuiper Belt objects, like Pluto, may have more than one moon. Or, you may think Pluto is different from the other objects in the Kuiper Belt. Scientists feel that the recent discovery of more moons around Pluto implies that there are probably other Kuiper Belt objects with many moons.
