Dwarf Planets and Asteroids: Minor Bodies of the Solar System by Thomas Wm. Hamilton


This stunning astronomy book explores Dwarf Planets and Asteroids: Minor Bodies of the Solar System.

Written by a retired astronomer, the book provides a survey of the dwarf planets and asteroids, giving details of the discovery, naming, orbits, and physical characteristics of hundreds of examples of the known asteroids found by astronomers in the past two centuries. It also includes the different groups and classes of asteroids.

Those bodies that have been visited by spacecraft are singled out for extra attention, including close-up photos where available. About two hundred asteroids have been found to have moons of their own, and the story of their discovery and examples of these moons are also included.
