Ringed Small Bodies

  • Jeremy Wood
Chapter
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Astronomy book series (BRIEFSASTRON)

Abstract

The field of ringed small bodies was born in 2013 by the serendipitous discovery of two narrow rings around the Centaur Chariklo, which orbits between Saturn and Uranus. Since then, rings have been detected around the TNO Haumea, and may exist around the Centaur Chiron. The existence of these ringed small bodies naturally raises several questions such as: how did the rings form? Are ringed small bodies commonplace? And what is the longevity of such rings?
