Project Description

PSI Co I Kaib will contribute to the proposal “Deciphering and interpreting the survival of the pristine Uranian moons.” Co I Kaib will assist with running and analyzing simulations that model the survival of the Uranian moons during the orbital instability thought to have occurred in the early outer solar system. Co Kaib will also assist with running and analyzing simulations that model the formation of the Uranian moons in conjunction with the orbital instability thought to have occurred in the early outer solar system.
