Understanding the surfaces of asteroids

A Fly Your Thesis! experiment has explained how gravel and rocks behave on the surface of an asteroid. The results will be useful in explaining asteroid geology, interpreting images of asteroid surfaces and designing future asteroid lander missions.

Asteroids are rising quickly up the scientific agenda. They hold information about the origin of the solar system, and they contain molecules that could tell us about the origin of life on Earth. Occasionally they can also present a danger to Earth by threatening to collide with our planet.
