Asteroids are small, rocky objects that orbit the sun. Although asteroids orbit the sun like planets, they are much smaller than planets. There are lots of asteroids in our solar system. Most of them live in the main asteroid belt—a region between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Asteroids hang out in other places, too. For example, some asteroids are found in the orbital path of planets. This means that the asteroid and the planet follow the same path around the sun. Earth and a few other planets have asteroids like this. These asteroids come from the left over of the formation of our solar system. Our solar system began about 4.6 billion years ago when a big cloud of gas and dust collapsed. When this happened, most of the material fell to the center of the cloud and formed the sun. Some of the condensing dust in the cloud became planets. The objects in the asteroid belt never had the chance to be incorporated into planets. They are leftovers from that time long ago when planets formed. Asteroids are many but there are different because asteroids formed in different locations at different distances from the sun, no two asteroids are alike. Here are a few ways that they differ:
• Asteroids aren’t all round like planets. They have jagged and irregular shapes.
• Some asteroids are hundreds of miles in diameter, but many more are as small as pebbles.
• Most asteroids are made of different kinds of rocks, but some have clays or metals, such as nickel and iron.
I have learned that while travelling in the rocket the asteroids will be moving sometimes it will hit the rocket. While it is coming they will be changing the rocket slightly because it will come in a big force so it may hit the rocket. The rocket uphold the damages some damages it will consider it will do its work but some time it may give a problem. There are many myths about these asteroids this found in that time itself that when two asteroids stroke together while in the speed it is sounded as thunderstorm but the real fact is a thunderstorm, also known as an electrical storm or a lightning storm, is a storm characterized … Strong or severe thunderstorms include some of the most dangerous weather … or where two winds converge forcing air upwards, or where winds blow over … The downdraft hitting the ground creates an outflow boundary. Recently in the year 2016, NASA launched the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft to study an asteroid near Earth named Bennu. After studying Bennu for a few years, OSIRIS-REx scooped up a sample of dust and rocks from the asteroid’s surface. This Asteroid Day is celebrated on 30th June who was the person to find this day for asteroids a day is the co-founded by Stephen Hawking, filmmaker Grigorij Richters, B612 Foundation President, Danica Remy, Apollo 9 astronaut Rusty Schweickart and Brian May, Queen Guitarist and astrophysicist. This International asteroid day is kept because it aims to raise public awareness about the asteroid impact hazard and to inform the public about the crisis communication actions to be taken at the global level in case of a credible near-Earth object threat.
