What is this tool?

It is a fun way to explore random asteroids in the solar system visually.

To make this generator I collected the names and associated imagery of 53 of the largest known asteroids. These rocky bodies are for the most part located within the Asteroid Belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, around 2AU to 5AU distance from the Sun.

Only the largest asteroids have actually been photographed by the Hubble Telescope or spacecraft because the others are simply too small, or not deemed worthy of diverting a spacecraft to.
