An asteroid is a rock that is far smaller than a planet or dwarf planet. They have no atmosphere. They may circle a sun or a planet.

Because asteroids are minor planets planets are apart and help our solar system\


planets are apart and help are solar system and asteroids hit are planets



how are asteroids like planets


They are made of space rock from different planets or mostly pieces of satellites or from a space ship.


No Asteroids are too small to be considered planets.


are asteroids smaller or larger than planets


Pluto is different from the inner planets in that it has not cleared it's orbit from asteroids.


Alike: Have rocky surfaces, are in space <-not really recommended Different: The shapes are different, on some planets theres life. :3


Planets are larger and more massive than asteroids, but very nearly the same size and mass as planets.


Asteroids move anywhere. Planets move in a pattern/orbit.


No they are just dwarf planets


Planets, the sun, asteroids, comets, satellites from the different planets, gases, rocks, etc.


A star, planets, satellites of the planets, asteroids, meteors, comets, dust particles and also vacuum.


its the comets are smaller than planets, moons, and asteroids. In order of size, usually comets < asteroids < moons < planets


There is only one factor that makes Pluto different from major planets:Pluto has not cleared its "neighborhood" of asteroids and debris.


Planets are large masses of rock and dust that orbit the sun. Asteroids are almost the same but the size sets them apart. Astroids are smaller masses of rock and dust, but still orbit the sun.


planets, asteroids, comets, dwarf plantets


ordinary planets are a big part of the solar system dwarf planets aren't that important they are considered like stars or asteroids but mainly dwarf planets


Asteroids can fall on any planet (or moon).



The planets moon or moons and asteroids


asteroids are space rocks while planets are plantes while comets are comets

Asteroids are much smaller than planets and generally are not rounded by their gravity.
