Asteroid Belt: Watch the Discovery of Our Space Neighbors

Space is not empty! There are so many objects surrounding us – and every year scientists find new stars, planets and asteroids. This video, provided by astronomer Scott Manley, depicts the updated history of the discovery of all asteroids on the frontier of the inner Solar System.
