The Deep Ecliptic Survey: A Search for Kuiper Belt Objects and Centaurs. II. Dynamical Classification, the Kuiper Belt Plane, and the Core Population
The Deep Ecliptic Survey (DES)?a search optimized for the discovery of Kuiper belt objects (KBOs) with the Blanco and Mayall 4 m telescopes at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory and KittExpand
High albedos of low inclination Classical Kuiper belt objects
Abstract We present observations of thermal emission from fifteen transneptunian objects (TNOs) made using the Spitzer Space Telescope . Thirteen of the targets are members of the ClassicalExpand
The Pluto system: Initial results from its exploration by New Horizons
The New Horizons encounter revealed that Pluto displays a surprisingly wide variety of geological landforms, including those resulting from glaciological and surface-atmosphere interactions as well as impact, tectonic, possible cryovolcanic, and mass-wasting processes. Expand
Separate Lightcurves of Pluto and Charon
We present new Hubble Space Telescope observations of the Pluto–Charon system taken with WFPC1 (PC6) between 1992 May 21 and 1993 August 18. Our observations consist of 52 images with the F555WExpand
Orbits and Photometry of Pluto's Satellites: Charon, S/2005 P1, and S/2005 P2
We present new astrometry of Pluto's three satellites from images taken of the Pluto system during 2002-2003 with the High Resolution Camera mode of the Advanced Camera for Surveys instrument on theExpand
The orbits and masses of satellites of Pluto
Abstract We present the numerically integrated orbits of Pluto’s satellites. The orbits have been fit to a data set that includes Earth-based and Hubble Space Telescope (HST) astrometry of Charon,Expand
Non-gravitational acceleration in the trajectory of 1I/2017 U1 (‘Oumuamua)
‘Oumuamua—the first known interstellar object to have entered the Solar System—is probably a comet, albeit with unusual dust and chemical properties owing to its origin in a distant solar system. Expand
Unbiased Inclination Distributions for Objects in the Kuiper Belt
Using data from the Deep Ecliptic Survey (DES), we investigate the inclination distributions of objects in the Kuiper Belt. We present a derivation for observational bias removal and use thisExpand
Surface compositions across Pluto and Charon
The New Horizons team presents the complex surface features and geology of Pluto and its large moon Charon, including evidence of tectonics, glacial flow, and possible cryovolcanoes, as well as their analysis of the encounter data downloaded so far. Expand
The small satellites of Pluto as observed by New Horizons
The New Horizons results on Pluto’s small moons help to elucidate the conditions under which the Pluto system formed and evolved, and massively increase the understanding of the bodies in the outer solar system. Expand
