The physical characterization of potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs) is important for impact hazard assessment and evaluating mitigation options. Close flybys of PHAs provide an opportunity to study their surface photometric and spectral properties that enable the identification of their source regions in the main asteroid belt. We observed PHA (357439) 2004 BL86 during a close flyby of the Earth at a distance of 1.2 million km (0.0080 AU) on 2015 January 26, with an array of ground-based…

The Sariçiçek howardite fall in Turkey: Source crater of HED meteorites on Vesta and impact risk of Vestoids

The Sariçiçek howardite meteorite shower consisting of 343 documented stones occurred on September 2, 2015 in Turkey and is the first documented howardite fall. Cosmogenic isotopes show that

Physical properties of near-Earth asteroids with a low delta-v: Survey of target candidates for the Hayabusa2 mission

Sample return from the near-Earth asteroid known as 25143 Itokawa was conducted as part of the Hayabusa mission, with a large number of scientific findings being derived from the returned samples.

Mineralogical Variations within the S-Type Asteroid Class

Abstract A systematic spectral analysis has been Carried out on a large subset (39 of 144) of the S-type asteroid population. The S-asteroid class includes a number of distinct compositional subtypes

Color and Albedo Heterogeneity of Vesta from Dawn

Dawn's observations confirm that Vesta is a small differentiated planetary body with an inner core, and represents a surviving proto-planet from the earliest epoch of solar system formation, and reveal its color and photometric diversity are indicative of its status as a preserved, differentiated protoplanet.

Dawn at Vesta: Testing the Protoplanetary Paradigm

Dawn's results confirm predictions that Vesta differentiated and support its identification as the parent body of the HEDs, and present the mineralogical characterization of Vesta, revealing that this asteroid underwent a complex magmatic evolution that led to a differentiated crust and mantle.

The Dawn spacecraft mission has provided extensive new and detailed data on Vesta that confirm and strengthen the Vesta–howardite–eucrite–diogenite (HED) meteorite link and the concept that Vesta is

An Anomalous Basaltic Meteorite from the Innermost Main Belt

A recent fall is reported on that has orbital properties and an oxygen isotope composition that suggest a distinct parent body, and modeling indicates that it originated from the innermost main belt.
