|Title: ||The Dark Side of Iapetus: New Evidence for an Exogenous Origin|
|Authors: ||Buratti, B. J.|
Mosher, J. A.
|Issue Date: ||1994 |
|Abstract: ||The Saturnian satellite Iapetus presents one of the most unusual appearances of any object in the Solar System: one hemisphere is about 10 times as bright as the other. The origin of the dark hemisphere - which reflects only a few percent of the solar radiation falling on it - is one of the great enigmas of planetary science.|
