Astronomy 161 - Introduction to Solar System Astronomy - Autumn 2007

Asteroids are the leftover rocky materials from the formation of the

Solar System that reside primarily in a broad belt between the orbits of

Mars and Jupiter. This lecture reviews the physical and orbital

properties of Asteroids, and discusses the role of Jupiter and orbital

resonances in dynamically sculpting the Main Belt of Asteroids. Once

again, we see how the history of the dynamical evolution of our Solar

System is written in the orbits of its members. Recorded 2007 Nov 26 in

1000 McPherson Lab on the Columbus campus of The Ohio State University.
