Overview

Asteroids, sometimes called minor planets or planetoids, are small Solar System bodies in orbit around the Sun, especially in the inner Solar System; they are smaller than planets but larger than meteoroids. The term "asteroid" has historically been applied primarily to minor planets of the inner Solar System, as the outer Solar System was poorly known when it came into common usage. The distinction between asteroids and comets is made on visual appearance: Comets show a perceptible coma while asteroids do not.

Notable Features

Very rocky. Commonly used by miners in the mining of valuable ores, minerals and gemstones.

When destroyed, they break into smaller pieces, as Boulders and Splinters.
