The asteroid that passed nearest to the sun was the asteroid that fell to the Gulf of Mexico and killed all of the dinosaurs.
most likely an asteroid that flew out of a asteroid belt or maybe a comet
The Sun has a much larger gravitational pull , an asteroid would be pulled faster toward the sun, if it were in the same proximity.
The one nearest the sun at any given moment.
The asteroid belt orbits the Sun
In the solar system Saturn is the nearest neighbor to Jupiter outward from the sun. Inward toward the sun, Mars is the nearest planetary neighbor to Jupiter, but the many asteroids and several minor planets in the "asteroid belt" are closer to Jupiter than is Mars.
the asteroids that are nearest to the sun is mostly made out of carbon while the ones further away are made out of silicate rock
Asteroid, moon, earth, sun.
how long does it take the asteroid belt to revolve around the sun?
Two parts of the asteroid belt, the inner belt is closer to the Sun and the outer belt is further from the Sun.
An asteroid could never travel from the Sun to the Earth.
It can get as cold as it can. The farther the planet with an asteroid belt is from the sun, the colder the asteroid belt gets :)
It would depend entirely on how far away the asteroid was from the sun. Furthermore, which sun are you referring to? There are many suns in the solar system.
The asteroid has momentum. There is also gravity in space mainly because of the Sun in our part of space. That gravity deflects the asteroid's path. The result is that the asteroid moves in an orbit around the Sun.
The sun. The moon orbits the earth and is our nearest space object - sometimes it passes between us and the sun, this is called a lunar eclipse. Venus orbits the sun. It is nearer the sun than us, so very occasionally it passes between us and the sun. This is called the transit of Venus.
Jupiter and Mars
Yes, theoretically an asteroid's orbit can be disturbed by a planet to such a degree that it would hit the Sun and burn up.
No, the Earth is not the nearest planet to the Sun. The nearest planet to the Sun is Mercury.
Yes. Asteroids orbit the sun.
Usually by another asteroid moving through the belt and hitting one, creating a force to move an asteroid from its orbit. Also, if a large enough asteroid passes by, it is possible that the gravity that it generates could pull a few off.
It is an asteroid.
Mercury is nearest the sun.
The Sun is nearest to Mercury
There are lot's of asteroids and each one is a different distance from the sun. Between Mars and Jupiter is the Asteroid belt. Is that what you mean?
A dwarf planet is a body that orbits the sun - is often beyond the orbit of Jupiter and is classified below a planet. An asteroid is a body that orbits the sun within the asteroid belt.
