Near-IR spectral evidence for the presence of iron-poor orthopyroxenes on the surfaces of six M-type asteroids
Abstract The first verifiable near-infrared absorption features in the ∼0.9-μm spectral region are reported for Asteroids 16 Psyche, 69 Hesperia, 110 Lydia, 125 Liberatrix, 201 Penelope, and 216Expand
Hayabusa2 arrives at the carbonaceous asteroid 162173 Ryugu—A spinning top–shaped rubble pile
Hayabusa2 at the asteroid Ryugu Asteroids fall to Earth in the form of meteorites, but these provide little information about their origins. The Japanese mission Hayabusa2 is designed to collectExpand
Physical characteristics of Comet Nucleus C/2001 OG108 (LONEOS)
Abstract A detailed description of the Halley-type Comet C/2001 OG108 (LONEOS) has been derived from visible, near-infrared, and mid-infrared observations obtained in October and November 2001. TheseExpand
Mineralogy of Asteroid 1459 Magnya and implications for its origin
Detailed near-infrared spectral observations of Asteroid 1459 Magnya reveal an asteroid that is primarily composed of pyroxene and plagioclase feldspar, confirming earlier suggestions that Magnya hasExpand
The geomorphology, color, and thermal properties of Ryugu: Implications for parent-body processes
Hayabusa2 at the asteroid Ryugu Asteroids fall to Earth in the form of meteorites, but these provide little information about their origins. The Japanese mission Hayabusa2 is designed to collectExpand
Near-Infrared Spectral Results of Asteroid Itokawa from the Hayabusa Spacecraft
The near-infrared spectrometer on board the Japanese Hayabusa spacecraft found a variation of more than 10% in albedo and absorption band depth in the surface reflectance of asteroid 25143 Itokawa.Expand
The effect of YORP on Itokawa
Abstract The effect of solar radiation on the near-term rotation rate of Asteroid Itokawa via the YORP effect is predicted using the detailed shape model, rotation pole, mass estimate, and opticalExpand
Constraining albedo, diameter and composition of near-Earth asteroids via near-infrared spectroscopy
Abstract We present a method to constrain the albedo and diameters of near-Earth asteroids (NEAs) based on thermal flux in their near-infrared spectra (0.7–2.5 μm) using the Standard Thermal Model.Expand
Olivine-dominated asteroids: Mineralogy and origin
Abstract Olivine-dominated asteroids are a rare type of objects formed either in nebular processes or through magmatic differentiation. The analysis of meteorite samples suggest that at least 100Expand
Composition of near-Earth Asteroid (4179) Toutatis
Abstract Surface composition of near-Earth Asteroid (4179) Toutatis is consistent with an undifferentiated L-chondrite composition. This is inconsistent with early observations that suggested highExpand
