TROJAN ASTEROID PATROCLUS Artist rendering of binary asteroid (617) Patroclus. Scientists at UC Berkeley think this system may have formed from an ancient comet several billion years in the past. The gravitational pull of Jupiter may have split the object in half, resulting in two, almost equal pieces. – Image Credit: Artist Illustration by Lynette Cook
