Overview

A look at the explosion in the number of known natural satellites in the solar system over the last decade. Satellites are now recognised as ubiquitous among the giant, terrestrial, and dwarf planets. They may also be found orbiting asteroids and Kuiper belt objects and embedded in ring systems. Observing campaigns and robot spacecraft (Cassini-Huygens New Horizons) continue to reveal the complex physical characteristics of moons and the intricate and coupled dynamical evolution of satellite systems.
