We need to understand the effects of these objects and what they can bring of the way of energy released; this means any objects Asteroids and Comets or energy (Particles). As scientist we need closer focus on the Gravitational effects that these object produce.  For example, the object known as 1950 DA, a near-Earth asteroid 1.3 kilometres across, that orbits the sun every 2.2 years, we need to know how much mass is as solid form and what is rubble. The object is showing the signs of having a large mass and solid core this would count for the fact that looser material on the surface is held by gravity.

When sending probes or humans to a comet or asteroid the need to study any radiating energies from the core of the object, along with fluctuation with gravitational energies. When dealing with comets we need to know internal structure as these objects are made up of frozen gas’s, one of our research at Earth Shield Program is studying multiple make ups of these objects. This will allow scientist to focus on ways of deflection or with comets always of minimising impact with Earth. Knowing that most comets have a much higher rate of speed than asteroids we also need to focus early warning systems, our research shows that having an early warning network of platforms in orbits between Mars and Jupiter

This Hubble photo of a random patch of sky is part of a survey called Frontier Fields. It contains thousands of galaxies, including massive yellowish ellipticals and majestic blue spirals. Much smaller, fragmentary blue galaxies are sprinkled throughout the field. The reddest objects are most likely the farthest galaxies. Asteroid trails appear as curved or S-shaped streaks. Asteroids appear in multiple Hubble exposures that have been combined into one image. Of the 20 total asteroid sightings for this field, seven are unique objects.
