The Porosity of Eros and Implications for Its Internal StructureWe estimate the porosity of Eros to be between 21-33%. Based on this porosity range and morphologic observations of the surface, we suggest that the asteroid is heavily fractured (but not a rubble pile). Additional information is contained in the original extended abstract.
