Millions, if including very small bodies.
it is unknown for now, but scientists do know that there are hundreds, or possibly thousands.., or even millions! they come in so many sizes, and it is difficult to count them… and it is nearly impossible to cross an asteroid belt.
There are 26 known asteroid belts larger than 200 kilo metres across
The largest body in the asteroid belt is Ceres, with a diameter of about 950 km. Although it has long been considered to be an asteroid, Ceres was classified as a "dwarf plane…t" on August 24, 2006. (The other dwarf planets are Pluto, Makemake, Haumea, and Eris.) The issue of whether Ceres remains an asteroid was not addressed at that time.
the Asteroid belt has no satelites all the asteroids that make up the belt is another asteroids satelite so there would be thousands of satelites
Kuiper Belt Objects (KBOs) are not normally considered to be asteroids even though some are very similar to asteroids. We keep finding more KBOs and there must be thousands of… them.
The entire amount rocks of the asteroid belt put together would be less the mass of the moon. Each free orbiting rock is roughly 1 million miles away from each other.
No. Asteroids are scattered throughout the solar system in various orbits, some of which are relatively stable. Some have orbits that pass near Earth. But the vast preponderan…ce of large asteroids are in the Main Belt between Mars and Jupiter. The problem with highly elliptical orbits is that the asteroid will be influenced by the major planets, moons, and the Sun. If its orbit is disturbed, it could be trapped by a giant planet or pulled too close to the Sun. Over the life of the solar system, many small asteroids have been either pulled into the Sun or ejected from the inner solar system by the gravity fields there.
The asteroids got into the asteroid belt because of the gravitational pull of the Sun
Most Asteroids are made of Carbon-based rock. Some though are made of iron and nickel.
About 300 moons. Comment: The question may mean the moons of asteroids. If so, there are not many we know about, but there are definitely some, eg. the moon Dactyl.
No. Most asteroids in the solar system are in the asteroid belt, but not all. The ones that may threaten to strike earth, for example, are outside the asteroid belt.
There are so many asteroids in the Asteroid belt because they have evolved through time and most of them have come from different explosions in our solar system and maybe a fe…w others have come from different solar systems maybe even from different galaxy's.
Yes, they even get delivered by little asteroid people in a first delivery space van.
there are so many, scientists don't know.
There are major 3 types of meteors. 1) Rocky meteor 2) Metallic meteor 3) a combination of both 1 and 3.
