I have been doing research on the dwarf planet known as Haumea using wikipedia.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haumea_(dwarf_planet)

I have had this thought that depending on this objects Trajectory and
Euclidean vector from our vantage point the earth to its position in
space it might be possible to use this object as a passive repeater
for radio wave or land a satellite on the mid suface of this planetary
environment that will act as such a transponder and repeater of radio
waves. This type of science will help us understand how to use
celestrial objects such as this one to enhance radio science, radio
propagation
in the outer fields of our planetary environment, reduce earth
background noise found on earth. Much like orbital optical astronomy
this could help us go far beyond how we conduct radio science on
earth. This could help many projects such as SETI, pulsar detection,
and other projects we conduct in radio science. It has already been
proven that radio waves can be used to bounce modulated signals off
the surface of the moon. The same principles can be applied hear. It
would help us use our satellite technology more efficiently as well.
