The small bodies of the solar system are fantastic conveyors of information about the formation and evolution of our planetary system. Their sheer number and the fact that they exist at multiples places makes small bodies very appealing, statistically. I study properties of these bodies that I hope can provide useful constraints on planet formation models. I will present a few results on physical and surface properties of Kuiper belt objects inferred from analysis of their rotational lightcurves.
