“In an expert account, Starkey, a British geologist and space scientist who lives in California, argues that particles, rocks, asteroids, and comets deserve more attention.

Today, most asteroids orbit the. Asteroids and asteroid belts are a staple of science fiction stories. Asteroids play several potential roles in science fiction, most notably as places which human beings might colonize, as resources for extracting minerals, as a hazard encountered by spaceships traveling between two other points, and as a threat to life on Earth due to potential impacts.

The coma is lit by the Sun. The sunlight also pushes. There is increasing interest in identifying asteroids whose orbits cross Earth's, and that could, given enough time, collide with Earth (see Earth-crosser asteroids).The three most important groups of near-Earth asteroids are the Apollos, Amors, and s asteroid deflection strategies have been proposed, as early as the s.
