Dwarf Planets2

Artistic comparison of Eris, Pluto, Makemake, Haumea, Sedna, 2007 OR10, Quaoar, Orcus, and Earth.

Larger Kuiper Belt Objects could be used for colonization, Dwarf Planets such as Pluto and Eris have enough resources to be colonized, the only issue is the large distance from the Sun, meaning that there is not enough natural light falling on these objects for them to be warm enough or the sunlight strong enough for plants to use, so to get around this problem nuclear fusion reactors would be used to create the power for artificial light, the planets would be paraterraformed to reduce the volume of area that needs to be kept warm and lighted, the paraterraformed areas of the planet will be designed to reflect the maximum amount of artifical sunlight back to the surface. No light should escape the planet. Comets would be harvested for deuterium and tritium, these resources will also exist on the planet.
