Asteroids by HIIS
Transcript of Asteroids by HIIS
There might be two asteroids caught in the orbit of Mars that are now both of Mars' moons.
Asteroids are huge masses of rock that have been drifting through the solar system or that have been pulled into the asteroid belt. Sometimes they collide with other planets and when they hit the surface they are called meteorites.
Asteroids are made of rock and some are the same material that planets are made of. This backs up the theory that asteroids could be captured by the gravity of other planets and become moons. This is because they are so close to what planets are made of.
What Are They Made Of?
Asteroids come from an area in between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter called the asteroid belt. Almost all the asteroids come from the asteroid belt, although some get pulled away by the gravity of Jupiter and into space.
Where Do They Come From?
Asteroids are basically giant hunks of rock that might have a few craters in them. They have these craters because other space debris and asteroids hit it. They are usually not in a perfect oval or perfect form, and look like they have a squiggly outline to them.
What do Asteroids Look Like?
Asteroids, once they hit the surface of another planet are called meteorites because asterites would sound really weird.
There are 1 million plus asteroids out in the solar system.
