Like the Trojan Horse of Greek mythology, Earth Trojan Asteroids also hold secrets!
Asteroids are made up of materials dating back to the beginnings of our solar system and, when they orbit the sun on the same path as a planet, are classified as trojans. And much like the Trojan Horse of Greek mythology, they may harbor secrets inside. An international team of astronomers, ...This is an NSF Multimedia Gallery item. (Source: NSF Multimedia Gallery)
