Integration of the orbit of asteroid (29075) 1950 DA, which is based on radar and optical measurements spanning 51 years, reveals a 20-minute interval in March 2880 when there could be a nonnegligible probability of the 1-kilometer object colliding with Earth. Trajectory knowledge remains accurate until then because of extensive astrometric data, an inclined orbit geometry that reduces in-plane perturbations, and an orbit uncertainty space modulated by gravitational resonance. The approach…

ORBITAL IDENTIFICATION FOR ASTEROID 152563 (1992 BF) THROUGH THE YARKOVSKY EFFECT
Often a newly discovered near-Earth asteroid is linked to old observations of a formerly lost object. This orbital identification is done using a standard dynamical model that accounts for
Probing general relativity with radar astrometry in the inner solar system
We describe a long-term program designed to obtain and interpret high-precision radar range measurements of a number of near-Earth objects (NEOs) that have trajectories reaching deep inside the

THE ROLE OF GROUNDBASED RADAR IN NEAR-EARTH OBJECT TRACKING , CHARACTERIZATION , AND THREAT MITIGATION
Ground-based radar is uniquely able to reduce uncertainty in trajectories and physical properties of NEOs. Radar can prevent the loss of a newly discovered object caused by the normal decay of orbit
Non-zero Yarkovsky acceleration for near-Earth asteroid (99942) Apophis
The leading source of uncertainty to predict the orbital motion of asteroid (99942) Apophis is a non-gravitational acceleration arising from the anisotropic thermal re-emission of absorbed radiation,
Surface Properties of Asteroids from Mid-Infrared Observations and Thermophysical Modeling
The subject of this work is the physical characterization of asteroids, focusing on the thermal inertia of near-Earth asteroids (NEAs). Thermal inertia governs the Yarkovsky effect, a

Dynamics of Earth‐crossing asteroids: the protected Toro orbits
Some asteroids in Earth‐crossing orbits avoid close approaches by entering in a mean motion resonance whenever the distance between the two orbits is small. These orbits are ‘Toro class’ according to

The Yarkovsky effect is a subtle nongravitational phenomenon related to the anisotropic thermal emission of Solar System objects. Its importance has been recently demonstrated in relation to the
