The main asteroid belt is a living relic. It contains a record of what happened to the solar system in terms of bombardment since the planet-formation epoch. Ongoing collisional and dynamical evolution processes, however, are slowly obscuring the traces left behind. The goal of modeling efforts is to use all possible observational data to discern the initial conditions and evolution processes that occurred during and after the planet-formation epoch. For example, the questions one can probe… CONTINUE READING
