Asteroids II

by Richard P. BinzelTom GehrelsMildred Shapley Matthews

This sourcebook brings together our knowledge about asteroids based on a gather during the week of March 8-11, 1988 with more than 160 scientists from 14 countries who gathered in Tucson for the Asteroids II conference.

Asteroids II is not a sequel, per se, to the 1979 book Asteroids. It offered a fresh treatment intended to stand on its own as a complete description of the understanding of the field at the time. It was first published in December 1989. The work showcases a large international collaboration, a sign of an active and growing discipline.
