2006 CH69, finding the way to open closed structures

2006 CH69 is a classical Kuiper belt binary object discovered in February of 2006. It has a perihelion of 44.1 AU and an aphelion of 47.8 AU. There is a prediscovery image back to February of 2005. It has a diameter of about 100 km. It reached the perihelion in December of 1985.

A moon of 2006 CH69, with a diameter of about 80 km, was discovered in 2006 and announced in August of 2010.

The main theme with 2006 CH69 is to find the way to open closed structures that block access or the way out, like in the 'dig down mode' in the video game "Lumines Supernova" (PS3, 2010) and the movies "Back to the Future" (1985), "Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid" (2004), "The Island" (2005), "Blood Diamond" (2006), "Rec" (2007) [="Quarantine" (2008)], "The Hurt Locker" (2008), "Taken" (2008), "127 Hours" (2010), "The Next Three Days" (2010) and "Buried" (2010).
