The gravity of the sun brings it to earth by it's gravity and it sometimes misses.

It burns up all of the asteroids that come to earth before they touch earth

No - but some do come close, they orbit a sun

Most asteroids are not in the same plane as earth. The word plane is quite generic. Some asteroids come very close to earth, and that is not a good thing as they could cause serious damage.

Some do, some do not. Both have in the past hit the Earth.

As far as we know, no rogue planet has ever come near Earth. Comets and asteroids have come near Earth, but not actual planets.

Asteroids, even very large ones, actually come close to earth regularly and cause no harm and no effect on life on earth. The concern would be a large asteroid crashing into the earth.

Craters are a significant sign of collisions with asteroids therefore yes asteroids collide with Earth

Asteroids that occasionally cross the orbit of Earth are known as Near Earth Asteroids. Asteroids that both cross the orbit of the Earth and are large enough to pose a significant threat in the event of an impact are known as Potentially Hazardous Asteroids.

that we will have aliens come to earth on a asteroids and want to r a p e us

Asteriods are giant rocks in the solar system that are a threat if the come really close to earth.

Not unless the two bodies meet, or come very close together.

asteroids vary in size from rock size to earth size and bigger.

The asteroids were coming fast to earth

Yes; some come close enough to crash with planet Earth - as was the case, for example, in the Tunguska (Siberia) in the year 1908.

Most asteroids are in the Asteroid Belt between Mars and Jupiter. But a few do come close to the Earth; these are called Near Earth Asteroids. You can see a list of NEAs, and the dates that they will come closest to the Earth, at Asteroids and comets have collided with the Earth in the past, and someday one will collide with Earth in the future. Depending on the mass of the asteroid, the damage could be catastrophic. 65 million years ago, scientists now believe that an asteroid or comet hit the Earth, causing the extinction of the dinosaurs and most life on Earth.

We know that asteroids have hit the earth because they cause indentations when they hit.

It is possible for comets and asteroids to hit Earth, but they are extremely rare events.

No. Asteroids can hit anywhere on earth.

Asteroids and comets have several similarities. They are both made of rocks and assorted materials, and they both come fairly close to Earth on a regular basis.

Comets and Asteroids can affect the Earth by ...A Asteroid hitting Earth and causing a crater and a Comet can cause excitement on Earth if they are spotted.

The densest form of interplanetary debris are asteroids. Asteroids are basically thick rocks that come together from the interplanetary dust and debris that sometimes fall to Earth.

Scientist say that a large sum of asteroids did a big bang and the asteroids created the lava core in the center of the Earth, when the Earth spun the heat cooled down so that bits of rock and environment could form. So according to scientist asteroids created Earth. Basically he means that earth was made from rock

Asteroids strike the surface of the Earth randomly. There is no place on the earth that is a preferred location for asteroid strikes.

They are from bigger asteroids. Two big asteroids crash into each other and little pieces come off the big asteroids.
