Solar System: Structure, Formation and Exploration


Editor: Matteo de Rossi

Series: Space Science, Exploration and Policies

In this book, the authors present topical research in the study of the structure, formation and exploration of the solar system. Topics discussed in this compilation include a quantum-like model to search the origin of the solar system structure; close binaries, eccentric exojupiters, and the solar system; harnessing energy from the sun by splitting water using Mn-oxo or Co-based catalytic systems to mimic photosynthesis; a relativistic positioning system exploiting pulsating sources for navigation across the solar system and the role of solar wind dynamics on interstellar dust in the solar system.
