Unraveling the Strands of Saturn's F Ring☆
Abstract Several high-resolution Voyager 2 images of Saturn's F ring show that it is composed of at least four separate, non-intersecting strands extending ∼45° in longitude. Voyager 1 images showExpand

Perturbations to Saturn's F-ring strands at their closest approach to Prometheus
Abstract The strange morphology of the F ring of Saturn is thought to be caused by the perturbing effects of two close satellites, Prometheus and Pandora. The F ring and the satellites alsoExpand

Gravitational effects of Nix and Hydra in the external region of the Pluto–Charon system
Two new companions to the Pluto-Charon binary system have been detected in 2005 by Weaver et al. These small satellites, named Nix and Hydra, are located beyond Charon's orbit. Although they areExpand

Small particles in Pluto's environment: effects of the solar radiation pressure
Impacts of micrometeoroids on the surfaces of the plutonian small satellites Nix and Hydra can generate dust particles. Even in this region so far from the Sun these tiny ejected particles are underExpand
