dc.description.abstract The purpose of this presentation is to point out that the origins and abundances of short-lived nu-clides in the early solar system had important conse-quences for “icy planetesimals”. It is believed that these planetesimals, composed of ice and rock, were once very abundant in the early, outer solar system. Today, spacecraft can visit remnants of that popula-tion and measure their properties. Cassini’s flyby of Saturn’s satellite Phoebe may have been the first visit to an object related to this population. en_US
