The Yarkovsky effect is a thermal radiation force which causes objects to undergo semimajor axis drift and spin up/down as a function of their spin, orbit, and material properties. This mechanism can be used to (i) deliver asteroids (and meteoroids) with diameter D < 20 km from their parent bodies in the main belt to chaotic resonance zones capable of transporting this material to Earth-crossing orbits, (ii) disperse asteroid families, with drifting bodies jumping or becoming trapped in mean… CONTINUE READING
