Mystery of the missing asteroids: Near-earth objects are NOT destroyed by plunging into the sun - so where do they go?

Posted by George Freund on February 18, 2016 

Granvik and his international team of researchers set out at first to construct a state-of-the-art model of the NEO population to help plan future asteroid surveys and spacecraft missions. They ended up discovering the solar system works differently to how we previously believed

Most of the objects originate in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter

The researchers looked at almost 9,000 asteroids in about 100,000 images

Darker asteroids are more easily destroyed than brighter ones

The next big question is what actually causes their destruction


An interesting conundrum. Maybe they were never there or the Sun isn't what they told us it was. The flat earth theory says we have a heliocentric Sun. Science is tending to prove it it seems.
