Asteroids are minor planets, especially those of the inner Solar System.
The asteroid belt is the circumstellar disc in the Solar System located roughly between the orbits of the planets Mars and Jupiter.
The barycenter (or barycentre; from the Ancient Greek βαρύς heavy + κέντρον centre) is the center of mass of two or more bodies that are orbiting each other, which is the point around which they both orbit.
Galileo was an American unmanned spacecraft that studied the planet Jupiter and its moons, as well as several other Solar System bodies.
A near-Earth object (NEO) is any small Solar System body whose orbit can bring it into proximity with Earth.
In astronomy, a rubble pile is a celestial body that is not a monolith, consisting instead of numerous pieces of rock that have coalesced under the influence of gravity.
A trans-Neptunian object (TNO, also written transneptunian object) is any minor planet in the Solar System that orbits the Sun at a greater average distance (semi-major axis) than Neptune, 30 astronomical units (AU).
The Yarkovsky–O'Keefe–Radzievskii–Paddack effect, or YORP effect for short, changes the rotation state of a small astronomical body – that is, the body's spin rate and the obliquity of its pole(s) – due to the scattering of solar radiation off its surface and the emission of its own thermal radiation.
107 Camilla is one of the largest main-belt asteroids.
121 Hermione is a very large asteroid discovered in 1872.
130 Elektra is a very large outer main-belt asteroid.
22 Kalliope is a large M-type asteroid from the asteroid belt discovered by J. R. Hind on November 16, 1852.
243 Ida is an asteroid in the Koronis family of the asteroid belt.
283 Emma is a large asteroid of the asteroid belt.
379 Huenna is a large asteroid orbiting in the asteroid belt.
45 Eugenia is a large asteroid of the asteroid belt.
69230 Hermes, provisional designation, is a sub-kilometer sized asteroid and binary system on an eccentric orbit, classified as a potentially hazardous asteroid and near-Earth object of the Apollo group, that passed Earth at approximately twice the distance of the Moon on 30 October 1937.
87 Sylvia is the 8th-largest asteroid in the asteroid belt.
90 Antiope is a double asteroid in the outer asteroid belt.
