Most inner main-belt asteroids are primitive rock and metal bodies in orbit about the Sun between Mars and Jupiter. Disruption, through high-velocity collisions or rotational spin-up, is believed to be the primary mechanism for the production and destruction of small asteroids and a contributor to dust in the Sun's zodiacal cloud, while analogous collisions(More)
We present recent Hubble Space Telescope observations of the inner filament of Centau-rus A, using the new Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) F225W, F657N and F814W filters. We find a young stellar population near the southwest tip of the filament. Combining the WFC3 dataset with archival Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) F606W observations, we are able to(More)
The LMC is ideal for studying the co-evolution of planetary nebulae (PNe) and their central stars, in that the debilitating uncertainties of the Galactic PN distance scale and selection biases from attenuation by interstellar dust do not apply. We present images and analyze slit-less spectra which were obtained in a survey of Large Magellanic Cloud PNe.(More)
A moon or natural satellite is a celestial body that orbits a planetary body such as a planet, dwarf planet, or an asteroid. Scientists seek understanding the origin and evolution of our solar system by studying moons of these bodies. Additionally, searches for satellites of planetary bodies can be important to protect the safety of a spacecraft as it(More)
We present a set of tasks developed to process dithered undersampled images. These procedures allow one to easily determine the offsets between images and then combine the images using Variable-Pixel Linear Reconstruction, otherwise know as " drizzle ". This algorithm, originally developed for the combination of the images in the Hubble Deep Field(Williams(More)
