Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS) observations in 1983 revealed the existence of several solar system dust bands. These dust bands are believed to be debris produced by recent disruption events among main-belt asteroids, particularly because dust particles have short dynamical and collisional lifetimes. Using young asteroid families as tracers of recent disruptions in the main belt, we linked the most prominent IRAS dust bands with their sources. We propose that the source regions of the… Expand
