Dico S.F. – Asteroid

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

An asteroid is a small celestial body (between several dozens meters and several hundreds of kilometres) gravitating around a star on an faintly elliptical orbit (unlike the comets). Asteroids are solitary and don’t orbit around planets.

The more often, the word “asteroid” refers to celestial bodies from our solar system, but in science fiction, it also designates small bodies gravitating around other stars.

Matching words: Comet, Meteorite, Planet, Planetoid
