Apophis: Complex rotation and hazard assessment

We present an updated hazard assessment for near-Earth asteroid (99942) Apophis. The stiff dynamics and the high precision of the trajectory of Apophis call for the most accurate dynamical model. In

Nongravitational perturbations and virtual impactors: the case of asteroid (410777) 2009 FD

Asteroid (410777) 2009 FD could hit Earth between 2185 and 2196. The long term propagation to the possible impacts and the intervening planetary encounters make 2009 FD one of the most challenging

Non-zero Yarkovsky acceleration for near-Earth asteroid (99942) Apophis

The leading source of uncertainty to predict the orbital motion of asteroid (99942) Apophis is a non-gravitational acceleration arising from the anisotropic thermal re-emission of absorbed radiation,

The Potentially Dangerous Asteroid (101955) Bennu

We computed impact solutions of the potentially dangerous asteroid (101955) Bennu based on 569 optical observations from September 11.40624UTC, 1999 to January 20.11189UTC, 2013, and 29 radar

The potentially dangerous asteroid (99942) Apophis

We computed impact solutions of the potentially dangerous asteroid (99942) Apophis based on 4022 optical observations and seven radar observations from 2013 March 15.10789 UTC through March 28.089569

The Potentially Dangerous Asteroid (101955) Bennu

We computed impact solutions of the potentially dangerous asteroid (101955) Bennu based on 569 optical observations from September 11.40624 UTC, 1999 to January 20.11189 UTC, 2013, and 29 radar

A Novel Approach to Asteroid Impact Monitoring

Orbit-determination programs find the orbit solution that best fits a set of observations by minimizing the root mean square of the residuals of the fit. For near-Earth asteroids, the uncertainty of

Keyhole maps are described as a tool to go beyond strongly scattering encounters and how to account for nongravitational perturbations, especially the Yarkovsky effect, when their contribution is the main source of prediction uncertainty.
