the biggest known asteroid is ceres
no, there is no known planet existing between mars and jupiter. between mars and jupiter is an asteroid belt known as the kepler belt.
the bits of space rock between mars and jupiter is known as the asteroid belt. the asteroid belt is comprised of many irregular celestial bodies.
the rocks between mars and jupiter are known as the asteroid belt. many of the asteroids are grouped into families. examples of asteroid families include flora, eunoma, koronis, eos and themis.
true... the asteroid belt can be found between the orbits of mars and jupiter.
an asteroid from the orbit between mars and jupiter known as the asteroid belt.
this is known as the asteroid belt. its mainly smaller bodies, but there are a few big asteroids in there also. the biggest object there is known as ceres. its about 1000km in diameter, and now classed as a dwarf planet.
it is located in the space between the orbits of mars and jupiter. it is a conglomeration of minor planets also known as asteroids.
there is a collection of asteroids between the orbits of mars and jupiter, known as the asteroid belt.
the average asteroid is approximately 583 miles long in width. the biggest, longest, and first known asteroid was discovered in 1801.
the largest known asteroid is ceres (a dwarf planet) with a diameter of about 974.6 kilometers or 606 miles.
most asteroids are located within the asteroid belt which is between the orbits of mars and jupiter. asteroids are also known as planetoids or minor planets.
jupiter is the next planet after mars, but there is small minor planets in between that's within the asteroid belt, with best known been ceres, expected to be explored by the dawn spacecraft in 2015.
jupiter is the largest known.
that is not known for sure, but one possible answer is is that the space between mars and jupiter is where gravitational forces of the sun and jupiter come close to balancing - hence much of the rocky debris from the early days of our solar system wound up in orbit there - balanced between the gravitational forces of the two.
asteroids are found all over the place; there is a larger concentration in certain areas, such as the asteroid belt between mars and jupiter, and the kuiper belt beyond the known planets in our solar system.
most asteroids are located in what is known as the asteroid belt, which is a region of space located between the orbits of mars and jupiter.
jupiter since it is the biggest planet.
the orbits of mars and jupiter also known as the asteroid belt.
the majority of the known asteroids spend the majority of their orbital periods at distances from the sun that are between the distances of mars and jupiter, so that's where you'll see the "asteroid belt" located on a sketch of the solar system.
hi jupiter is the 5th and the biggest planet in the solar system. the planet jupiter has 63 moons. the 4 main known and the big moons of jupiter are io, ganymede, europa and callisto. ganymede is the biggest moon of jupiter and is bigger than that of the earth.
it is believed that gravitational perturbations from jupiter may have prevented asteroids from coalescing into a single body. also, the mass of the asteroid belt is less than that of any known planet.
jupiter is the largest known planet which orbits the sun.
the biggest planet is known as jupiter. saturn is the 2nd largest.
