historic references Discovery circumstances, reference collections
lightcurves Light intensity variation with time
Subfacet1 value Meaning
secular TBD
rotational TBD
occultation TBD
meteoritics Meteor shower counts, meteorite studies
physical properties Mass, density, albedo, etc.
production rates Quantification of mass loss from, e.g., the nucleus of a comet: molecule production rates, Afρ, etc.
shape models Shape models, terrain models, elevation models, etc.
taxonomy Physical and dynamical taxonomies of small bodies
