Orbit classification in the planar circular Pluto-Charon system
We numerically investigate the orbital dynamics of a spacecraft, or a comet, or an asteroid in the Pluto-Charon system in a scattering region around Charon using the planar circular restricted
Evolution of a ring around the Pluto-Charon binary
We consider the formation of satellites around the Pluto-Charon binary. An early collision between the two partners likely produced the binary and a narrow ring of debris, out of which arose the
The Neptune-Triton-Pluto system
A computational model for the origin of the Neptune--Triton--Pluto system is described in which Triton originates in a highly eccentric heliocentric orbit and Pluto as a natural satellite of Neptune.

The Orbit of Charon
Abstract The orbit of Charon has been determined from 60 images of the Pluto–Charon system acquired with the Hubble Space Telescope Wide Field and Planetary Camera between 1992 May 21 and 1993 August
