Spins and shapes of V-type asteroids in the inner Main-Belt
Most basaltic V-type asteroids in the inner Main-Belt are located inside the collisional Vesta family and are considered parts of the fossil planetesimal (4) Vesta. Some asteroids are found outside the family and are considered Vesta fugitives, that is asteroids that migrated and have escaped the boarders of the family beyond recognition of common
Physical properties of 5 near-Earth asteroids observed with the Arecibo Planetary Radar within NEOROCKS project.
The near-Earth object (NEO) population is composed of asteroids and comets that have orbits close to the Earth. This vicinity to the Earth gives us some advantages, because this population is the most accessible vestige from the building blocks that formed the Solar System, for spacecrafts, and for detailed observations from ground-based facilities
