Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) are comets and asteroids that have been nudged by the gravitational attraction of nearby planets into orbits that allow them to enter near Earth. Composed mostly of water ice with embedded dust particles, comets originally formed in the cold outer planetary system while most of the rocky asteroids formed in the warmer inner solar system between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. The scientific interest in comets and asteroids is due largely to their status as the relatively unchanged remnant debris from the solar system formation process some 4.6 billion years ago. The giant outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn,...

What materials are in space?

           Any materials you can find here on earth you should be able to find in space because earth was created by all the same thing that all other space bodies were created by. The only biggest problem with finding some of these materials on earth is heavier minerals and metals move closer to the center of the earth because of gravity. On smaller bodies such asteroids the materials site closer to the surface because of lower gravity. Below is a list of different material and some uses: ( This list is an active list that...
