The Dynamics of NEO Binary Asteroids Journal Article uri icon



  • AbstractThe dynamics of binary Near-Earth objects (NEO) are discussed and a simple model for the study of their dynamics is introduced. Main results on the motion and stability of binary asteroids are reviewed. The effect of perturbations external to the binary system, including solar gravity, solar radiation pressure, and planetary gravity, are considered.
