Near-Infrared Mapping and Physical Properties of the Dwarf-Planet Ceres

Aims. We study the physical characteristics (shape, dimensions, spin axis direction, albedo maps, mineralogy) of the dwarf-planet Ceres based on high-angular resolution near-infrared observations.

Establishing a Hybrid Plasma Environment Simulation Facility

Over the past decade, investigations into dusty plasmas have improved our understanding of protoplanetary environments, moons (including Earth's Moon), ring systems and comets. They have also been

Etude des propriétés physiques des astéroîdes par imagerie à haute résolution angulaire

La comprehension de la formation des systemes planetaires, et du systeme solaire en particulier, est un des buts premiers en planetologie. De nombreuses informations sur les processus ayant eu lieu



The Electric Charging of Interstellar Dust in the Solar System and Consequences for Its Dynamics

The motion of the solar system relative to the local interstellar medium causes a flux of neutral gas and dust into the solar system. When interstellar dust particles penetrate into the solar system,


Abstract In comparison to the lunar regolith, asteroidal regoliths appear to be deficient in dust and in agglutinates, i.e., in particles ≤100 μm across. On asteroid surfaces of high electrical

The Collisional History of Asteroid 253 Mathilde

Abstract Asteroid 253 Mathilde is found to have a collisional lifetime of approximately 4 billion years, essentially indistinguishable from the age of the Solar System. However, uncertainties in our

Imaging of asteroid 433 eros during NEAR's flyby reconnaissance

During the 23 December 1998 flyby of asteroid 433 Eros, the Near-Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR) spacecraft obtained 222 images of Eros and reveal an elongated, cratered body with a linear feature extending for at least 20 kilometers.

Astrophysical Data : Planets and Stars

This volume collects reference information for astronomers and astrophysicists, ranging from fundamental physical constants to orbital data for selected asteroids. For the Earth and planets, it
