Understanding the Formation and Evolution of the Kuiper Belt by Exploring the Haumea System

The in-situ observation and data collection at the dwarf planet Haumea would provide for invaluable insight into the history of the Kuiper Belt and the Solar System ̧ as well as the on-going processes that lead to high spin rates, rings, and satellite systems. In this white paper, we will make a case for an exploration mission to the Haumea system.
