  • Identification and dynamical properties of asteroid families

    Nesvorný, David; Brož, Miroslav; Carruba, Valerio Autor UNESP (Asteroids IV, 2015) [Capítulo de livro]
    Asteroids formed in a dynamically quiescent disk but their orbits became gravitationally stirred enough by Jupiter to lead to high-speed collisions. As a result, many dozen large asteroids have been disrupted by impacts ...
