  • Herculina is one of the larger members of the main asteroid belt.
  • It is about 60 km in diameter and lies in the main asteroid belt.
  • It is part of the main asteroid belt outside the orbit of Mars.
  • It has a nearly circular orbit passing close to the inner edge of the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
  • This Vesta-sized asteroid was a remnant of a population which initially was much larger than the current main asteroid belt.
  • If placed at the centre of the Solar System, the orbit of Mars and most of the main asteroid belt would be contained within the star.
  • Such positions are e.g. near Kirkwood gaps and/or secular resonances in the main asteroid belt.
  • It is in the Hungaria region of the main asteroid belt.
  • Studies of the dynamics of the main asteroid belt during giant planet migration have significantly limited the number of impactors originating from this region.
  • The asteroid's takes if from the outer main asteroid belt to between the orbit of Saturn and Uranus.
  • The result was consistent with calculations based on the recent estimates of the orbital density of the main asteroid belt before the planetary migration.
  • For example, the numerous space probes sent to the outer solar system, just across the main asteroid belt, have never had any problems, and asteroid rendezvous missions have elaborate targeting procedures.
  • The asteroid is located in the main asteroid belt between Jupiter and Mars, circling the sun every 4 years 2 months approximately.
  • The Main Asteroid belt - often simply called The Belt - is a haven for the lawless of the System, and all others who wish not to be noticed by the interplanetary authorities.
  • The jumping-Jupiter scenario yields a much smaller flux of impactors from the main asteroid belt during the Late Heavy Bombardment.
  • A Lazarus comet is a small body within the main asteroid belt that is not an asteroid, but a comet that has been trapped and may be re-energized into being a live comet.
  • Asteroid 117032 Davidlane is named in his honour, and the asteroid lies in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
  • It lies within the main asteroid belt and is the namesake for the Alinda family group of asteroids, although it is also classified as an Amor III asteroid.
  • The error is at the level of 100 s for objects in the main asteroid belt, 5 s for Edgeworth-Kuiper Belt objects.
  • This scenario also significantly reduces the fraction of asteroids removed from the main asteroid belt leaving a now nearly depleted inner band of asteroids as the primary source of the impactors of the LHB.
