  • In this work we investigate the orbital distribution of interstellar objects (ISOs), observable by the future wide-field National Science Foundation Vera C. Rubin Observatory (VRO). We generate synthetic population of ISOs and simulate their ephemerides over a period of 10 years, in order to select those which may be observed by the VRO, based on the nominal characteristics of this survey. We find that the population of the observable ISOs should be significantly biased in favor of retrograde… CONTINUE READING
