From Garching to the Solar System: Distinctive Images of Asteroids

Emphasizes that such a large asteroid team has never been filmed so sharply before European Southern Laboratory (Eso) Based on karting near Munich. The sharp images of these 42 objects are an excellent step in the study of asteroids.

Unique images of asteroids

But what does that mean in concrete terms? The largest telescope (VLT) in Chile recorded asteroids between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter – very sharp, the images help determine where the asteroids came from.

Iso, who covers 15 European countries and Brazil, said the images “show a wide variety of strange shapes, from spherical to dog bones.” Its headquarters are located in the university city of Karting, with the administration of the most important science and technology departments and organization. From there, the development of new tools for laboratories progressed.

Knowledge of the shape and density of asteroids

The new films were a huge success for Iso. Earlier, Pierre Vernasa of the Laboratoire d’Astrophysique de Marseille in France said that only three large asteroids in the belt had been mapped in such detail during space travel. So little is known about their shape and density.

Notes on the origin of asteroids

This is in contrast to the meteorites now recorded: according to Iso, objects vary considerably in terms of density. That is, some asteroids are as dense as coal, while others are denser than diamond. According to Joseph Hanas of Charles University in Prague, we can only understand this tremendous diversity in their composition if bodies are arranged in different parts of the solar system. He is co-author of a study on objects called asteroid belts published by astronomers in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics.
