Outer satellites of the planets have distant, eccentric orbits that can be highly inclined or even retrograde relative to the equatorial planes of their planets. These irregular orbits cannot have formed by circumplanetary accretion and are likely products of early capture from heliocentric orbit. The irregular satellites may be the only small bodies remaining which are still relatively near their formation locations within the giant planet region. The study of the irregular satellites provides… Expand
The Capture of Satellites by Binary-Planet Encounters : A Computational Analysis of the Cases of Triton , Phobos and Deimos
Conversely to regular satellites, irregular ones have been widely accepted to be foreign bodies originated elsewhere from their present location, that early in the Solar System history were somehowExpand
The Irregular Satellites of Saturn Tilmann Denk
The outer or irregular moons of Saturn are a class of objects that is very distinct from the other satellites treated in this book. It not only has more objects (38 are presently known) than theExpand
Studies of irregular satellites: I. Lightcurves and rotation periods of 25 Saturnian moons from Cassini observations
Abstract Disk-integrated time-resolved photometric observations have been performed for 25 irregular moons of Saturn with the ISS camera of the Cassini spacecraft in a wide range of solar phaseExpand
The rotation states predominant among the planetary satellites
On the basis of tidal despinning timescale arguments, Peale showed in 1977 that the majority of irregular satellites (with unknown rotation states) are expected to reside close to their initialExpand

TLDR
The case for implementation of moving target tracking is presented, a feature that will benefit from the heritage of JWST and enable a broader range of solar system observations. Expand
Satellite capture mechanism in a sun-planet-binary four-body system
This paper studies the binary disruption problem and asteroid capture mechanism in a sun-planet-binary four-body system. Firstly, the binary disruption condition is studied and the result shows thatExpand
