This book is for CHILDREN who like to read SPACE SCIENCE. This book explains Astronomy about ASTEROIDS, METEOROIDS, COMETS AND METEOR SHOWERS.
Asteroids are ‘minor planets’ as they are much smaller in size than planets. They are usually found in the inner solar systems. It is small and rock like objects that orbit the Sun. Asteroids are made from different kinds of rocks and metals, with the metal being mostly the Nickel and Iron. Asteroids don’t have an atmosphere.
Many colorful pictures in the book will increase the interest while reading this book.
We all know that millions of years ago, asteroids hit the Earth and made all dinosaurs disappear. A collision 66 million years ago between The Earth and an object (which was approximately 10 Kilometres wide) is thought to have produced the extinction event for dinosaurs. This event is widely held responsible for the extinction of most of dinosaurs.
It is necessary to learn and research the asteroids to avoid any such collisions in the future. It is important to find the number of methods by which asteroids (NEO) could be diverted which prevent the destructive impact events. While the chances of a major collision are low in the near term, there is a certainty that one will happen unless defensive measures are taken. The scientific development in this field will ensure the safety.
