This Concept Map, created with IHMC CmapTools, has information related to: ASTR178 Draft, Slingshots Neptune to outser solar system possibly creating The Ort Cloud, Lagrange Points these points stabilised by Jupiters gravity due to coriolis force which allows clumps of asteroids to form, Jupiter Orbital resonances are caused by the gravity of Kirkwood Gaps, Prevents the creation of planitesimals or planets Gravity Jupiter, Trojan Asteroids Located in Lagrange Points, 'Nice' model simulated the early solar system Jupiter and Saturn cross their 1:2 mean motion resonance, Meteorites Pieces of asteroid/asteroid fragments fallen to earth are Can break into fragments and can be classified into 3 broad categories, Asteroids ???? Can break into fragments and can be classified into 3 broad categories, Asteroids Composition/Type Carbonaceous, Comets Composition Gas ice, Asteroids Largest asteroid is Ceres- is also classified as a dwarf planet- has a 900km diameter!, Comets Due to Gravity Can venture close to the sun, Comets Composition Dust, Size Determined by Collision, "Why does the Solar System abound with rocks gathered up in specific places?" Location of objects The Kuiper Belt, Material that never quite formed to make planets . Remnants of the early solar system, Jupiter Location dependant on and is shaped by The Asteroid Belt, Trans-Neptunian Objects Most orbit within a band called the.. The Kuiper Belt, Possibility of large planet in asteroid belt Torn apart in early solar system Due to gravity of Jupiter, Possibility of large planet in asteroid belt Led to Search for missing planet
