A Survey of Orbits of Co-Orbitals of Jupiter (Poster)
Co- 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 was discovered ...
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 ...
