Inner solar system dynamical analogs for plutinos
By studying orbits of near-Earth asteroids potentially in 2:3 mean motion resonance with Earth, Venus, and Mars, we have found plutino analogs. We identify 23 objects in the inner solar system dynamically protected from ...
An Online Mechanics Experiment
Physics distance education has grown rapidly in recent years. The theory part of a physics course taught in this way has much common ground with other courses. However, lab instruction is an important part of introductory ...
Co-orbitals CASCA Talk
Presentation from CASCA 2006 covering general aspects of co-orbital motion with emphasis on the fact that they would be good targets for space missions.
CASCA Main Presentation 2006
Presentation about stability of quasi-satellites, no movies.
STEP Forward 2007-2007 Space Science Enhancement Proposal to CSA
The most effective way to exploit Canada’s ideal position for auroral zone science is to emplace instruments with sufficient density for meaningful studies. Magnetometers are useful instruments for this since their cost ...
Electrodynamic Parameters of the Auroral Oval from Combined Spacecraft and Ground Measurements
(European Space Agency, 2006)
Spacecraft traversing the auroral oval respond primarily to the field-aligned currents at its poleward and equatorward borders that are part of a solenoidal current system. If electric and magnetic field measurements are ...
CASCA 2006 Calgary AU Attendees
Photos showing AU attendees at CASCA 2006, held in Calgary in early June 2006.
A Centenary Survey of Orbits of Co-Orbitals of Jupiter
Jupiter’s Trojan asteroids fulfill the prediction of Lagrange that orbits can be stable when a small body orbits in specific locations relative to its ‘parent’ planet and the Sun. The first such Trojan asteroid was discovered ...
Interpretation of Automated Forward Modeling Parameters for Sawtooth Events and Substorms
(International Conference on Substorms 8, 2006)
Automated Forward Modeling (AFM) is an inversion technique based on magnetic data alone, which can indicate physical parameters associated with electrojets. From perturbations along a meridian, the total electric current ...
Noctilucent Cloud Videos, Jun 23 2006
Videos of noctilucent clouds (NLC) seen from Athabasca University Geophysical Observatory on June 23 2006. NLC are mesospheric clouds which are very high and lit up by the sun despite it being well below the horizon at the ...
