Over 100 hidden asteroids detected by new algorithm studying old telescope data

Researchers using an innovative astrodynamic algorithm have discovered more than 100 asteroids that had not been detected in archived images of the sky.

Asteroids are rocky objects left by the formation of the solar system more than 4 billion years ago. Ranging in size from several feet to hundreds of kilometers in diameter, these rocky bodies are too small to be considered planets.
