Asterank:Asteroid Database Plus Lots More
Asternak does a lot more than offer scientific an economic database of asteroids. Make sure to click through all the available links for all sorts of space-related information
Asterank is a scientific and economic database of over 600,000 asteroids.
We've collected, computed, or inferred important data such as asteroid mass and composition from multiple scientific sources. With this information, we estimate the costs and rewards of mining asteroids.
Details on orbits and basic physical parameters are mostly sourced from JPL data. Composition data is less well known, so we compute generalizations based on spectral classification and size. Our calculations incorporate conclusions from multiple scientific publications in addition to cross-referencing known meteorite data
