Additional resources discussed:
- The “RealAge” Test has been taken by more than 45 million people. The scientifically-based assessment shows you the true age of the body you’re living in – the first step towards improving your well-being.
- The JPL Small-Body Database Browser provides data for all known asteroids and many comets. Available data include: orbital elements, orbit diagrams, physical parameters, and discovery circumstances. Newly discovered objects and their orbits are added on a daily basis and discovery circumstances are updated on a roughly monthly interval. Physical parameters (other than magnitude parameters) are updated on a less frequent basis.
