Asteroid approaching Earth, artwork. The Milky Way and the Moon are seen in the background. Asteroids are rocky bodies orbiting within the solar system. They vary in size from tens of metres across to over a hundred kilometres across. A few asteroids have orbits that intersect with that of Earth. Large asteroids (over a kilometre across) impacting the Earth can cause mass loss of life. It is thought that this is what caused the extinction of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.
