Earth Impactors - Meteors and their parent bodies

Dr. Shinsuke Abe
Graduate Institute of Astronomy
National Central University

Parent bodies of the most of major meteor showers have been identified as comets or dormant comets. On the other, it is still a matter of finding parent bodies of meteorites. Here, I will present asteroid related fireballs, and an artificial fireball (HAYABUSA asteroid explored spacecraft and its capsule) directly reentered from the interplanetary orbit. HAYABUSA and HAYABUSA2 will be also introduced.
