ON THE ORIGIN OF RETROGRADE SATELLITES OF PLANETS

К. О. Радченко

Abstract


The retrograde moons of thegiant planets are special objects in the Solar system. Unlike regular satellites they revolve around planets in oppositedirection on orbits with large angles of inclination and eccentricity. By this time there is no universally acceptedconcept of their origin. Studies of orbital parameters of retrograde satellites of planets during their evolution can giveus information about their formation after the formation of planets and direct satellite systems. This article is anoverview of retrograde satellites on the set of orbital parameters and considered various hypotheses of their formation.

Keywords


celestial mechanics; retrograde satellites; formation of planets and satellites.
