Mirko Trisolini presents at the 2022 AIAA SciTech Forum

Mirko Trisolini presented the latest results of his work under the MSCA Action CRADLE at the 2022 AIAA SciTech Forum in San Diego, California. He presented the development of distribution-based models to describe the behaviour of ejecta generated by small kinetic impactors onto asteroid surfaces. He also studied the sensitivity of the ejecta fate to the modelling assumptions. He showed the different orbital evolution of the ejected fragments as function of how we describe the ejection direction and the size and velocity distributions for a more robust prediction of the ejecta evolution in time.
