Group 1 Comets And Asteroids

Comets and asteroids are 2 very different things. A comet is made of ice and has a trail behind it, facing away from the sun. An asteriod is a lump of rock wizzing through space.


Asteroids in our solar system are concentrated in two bands, one inbetween Mars and Jupiter and the other out beond Pluto. Contary to popular belief, the asteroid belt inbetween Mars and Jupiter is not impassable, infact they are actually spread out quite a bit.
