Asteroid Discovery 1980 - 2010

1 minute read

We sometimes forget about those souls slowly pushing forward the edges of science and discovery. Love this time series animation of the discovery of asteroids in the last 30 years. It’s incredible to think how much more we’ve discovered in such a comparatively short amount of time.

Can’t wait till we see a model like this for extrasolar planets we know about or stars we’ve reached… ;-)
