Ye Olde Electric Asteroids
This article / E-book proposes that the shape and orbital parameters of asteroids and comets - and therefore the sorting of the asteroids - are to a large degree determined by electric currents and by the magnetic field of the Sun. It discusses the asteroids in the Main Belt and in other asteroid groups. In particular it discusses asteroids and comets that have been photographed by space probes. More
There is a plethora of asteroids and comets in our solar system: Apollo's, Amors, Hilda's, Hungarians, Main Belt asteroids, Trojans, Cybeles. There are asteroid 'families' and there are interloping comets. The asteroids appear have been sorted. This article / E-book proposes that the shapes and orbital parameters of asteroids and comets are affected by electric currents and magnetic fields and that these provide the sorting mechanism.
