Derived 25143 Itokawa Data

The data sets listed in the table below are PDS3 legacy data sets. Once these data sets have been migrated to PDS4 they will be listed in the section above.

Data Set Name Data Set Description Browse Citation
Torino Polarimetry of 25143 ItokawaThis data set contains the polarimetry of asteroid 25143 Itokawa published in Cellino et al. (2005). The observations were made from June 26 through July 3, 2004 with the Torino photopolarimeter at the 2.15 m telescope of the El Leoncito Observatory in Argentina. The degree of linear polarization was measured in five filters (Johnson-Cousins UBVRI). Browse

Stooke Small Bodies MapsThese maps of small solar system bodies have been prepared by Philip Stooke of the University of Western Ontario. This data set includes 270 map sheets of six asteroids, five planetary satellites, and three comets, all prepared from spacecraft images. This data set was updated in 2015 with the addition of 44 new map sheets. Browse

Gaskell Itokawa Shape Model The shape model of 25143 Itokawa derived by Robert Gaskell from Hayabusa AMICA images. The model is provided in the implicitly connected quadrilateral (ICQ) format in four levels of resolution. This version of the model was prepared on August 29, 2007. Vertex-facet versions of the models are also provided. Browse
