Signatures of the Giant Planets Imprinted on the Edgeworth-Kuiper Belt Dust Disk
One method to detect extrasolar planetary systems is to deduce the perturbations of planets on the observed circumstellar dust disks. Our solar system, with its known configuration of planets,Expand

Dust Near The Sun
We review the current knowledge and understanding of dust in the inner solar system. The major sources of the dust population in the inner solar system are comets and asteroids, but the relativeExpand

Mineralogy of carbonaceous chondritic microclasts in howardites: identification of C2 fossil micrometeorites
Abstract Seventy-one carbonaceous chondritic microclasts of average size 150 μm have been found in three howardites (Yamato-793497, Jodzie, Kapoeta). All carbonaceous chondritic microclasts are madeExpand

Evolution of Interplanetary Dust Particles in Mean Motion Resonances with Planets
Abstract The three-dimensional orbital evolution of interplanetary dust particles in mean motion resonances (MMRs) with planets is investigated in a restricted three-body system. Using the timeExpand

Radiation Pressure, Poynting-Robertson Drag, and Solar Wind Drag in the Restricted Three-Body Problem
Abstract In this paper, we examine the effects of radiation pressure, Poynting-Robertson (PR) drag, and solar wind drag on dust grains trapped in mean motion resonances with the Sun and Jupiter inExpand

Orbital Evolution of Retrograde Interplanetary Dust Particles and Their Distribution in the Solar System
Abstract The orbital evolution of interplanetary dust particles (IDPs) from both retrograde and prograde Halley-type comets is numerically simulated. It is found that dust particles nearly always getExpand

Solar Wind Magnetic Field Bending of Jovian Dust Trajectories
From September 1991 to October 1992, the cosmic dust detector on the Ulysses spacecraft recorded 11 short bursts, or streams, of dust. These dust grains emanated from the jovian system, and theirExpand

Engineering and Technology Challenges for Active Debris Removal
After more than |fty years of space activities, the near-Earth environ- ment is polluted with man-made orbital debris. The collision betweenExpand

Depletion of the Outer Asteroid Belt
During the early history of the solar system, it is likely that the outer planets changed their distance from the sun, and hence, their influence on the asteroid belt evolved with time. TheExpand

An Asteroidal Dust Ring of Micron-Sized Particles Trapped in the 1:1 Mean Motion Resonance with Jupiter
Abstract We have studied the orbital evolution of micrometer-sized asteroidal dust particles under the influence of planetary gravitational perturbations, radiation pressure, Poynting-Robertson (PR)Expand
