Why is there an asteroid belt?

Unread post by Maddogkull » Sun Jun 27, 2010 12:12 pm

Sorry again if this has been answered, But I checked and could not find anything.

Why is there an asteroid belt. Does PC have an alternate reason why there is an asteroid belt compared to mainstream science?

We can't have those asteroid knickers flapping in the solar wind now, can we? :lol:

More puzzling data for NASA to try and explain. Surely someone there understands what is really going on?

Hi Gary,
If you tilt your head to the left, the top image on the page looks like a dragon's skull.

Hi GC, they need to mark this on their space charts then? :lol:

That looks very much like a weld termination, where the electric arc is withdrawn.
The micro pitting and 'spatter', as well.

Violent Spacequakes Shake Earth's Magnetic Field

Spacequakes aren't the only unearthly temblors around. Scientists have also discovered starquakes (violent trembling inside stars), moonquakes and asteroid quakes (seismic tremors on the surface of the moon and asteroids, respectively). In fact, Earth can actually stimulate asteroidquakes when wayward space rocks fly too close to our planet.
Yeah, 15 earth radii and to state it clear, we are talking about how the plasma environment interacts with passing objects. It is a plasma universe and electricity has a very big play in it.

Also check the comments on the article.

probably entirely oversimplistic, but what about a huge metal rod, shouldn't a giant magnetic field like that induce an electrical charge?

Re: Ice confirmed on an asteroid

TRY TO CONFIRMED???

Scientists have found lots of life-essential water – frozen as ice – in an unexpected place in our solar system: an asteroid between Mars and Jupiter.

The discovery of significant asteroid ice has several consequences. It could help explain where early Earth first got its water. It makes asteroids more attractive to explore, dovetailing with President Barack Obama's announcement earlier this month that astronauts should visit an asteroid.

X shaped asteroid

Unread post by shadowmane » Thu Oct 14, 2010 7:39 am

I saw this on Space.com and wanted to ask, is this an electrical event. The tail of debris, they say in the article, is very comet-like. Or is this just the process of the asteroid breaking up from such a huge impact?

welcome shadowmane,
Whether or not this is the result of a collision of two asteroids I will leave for others to discuss, but I find this interesting, from the linked article:
"We have directly observed a collision between asteroids for the first time, instead of having to infer that they happened from million-year-old remains," researcher Colin Snodgrass, a planetary scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Katlenburg-Lindau, Germany, told SPACE.com.
That seems to me, to matter of factly state that they observed the collision, ie they were actual witnesses...no? How else can we interpret "we have directly observed a collision between asteroids for the first time.."?
But then later in the article the above assertion is contradicted:
The two asteroids whose remains make up P/2010 A2 were unknown before the impact because they were too faint to be detected. Scientists did not witness the collision itself because it happened when the asteroids were in the same direction as the sun, but computer models suggest the collision took place around February 2009.
Oh, the collision was "observed" via computer models, now I understand.

Nick

LOL... I see your point. Nothing has been observed but the comet-like tail coming from an X shaped object. Still, what could this object actually be?

Looks like a thing that we know already! - From an excellent observation, back in 1881:
