Observations from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer have led to the best assessment yet of our solar system's asteroids. The results reveal new information about their origin and total number. Scientists using data from WISE have uncovered new clues in the ongoing mystery of the Jovian Trojans -- asteroids that orbit the sun on the same path as Jupiter. Like racehorses, these asteroids travel in packs, with one group leading the way in front of the gas giant and a second group trailing behind. Do you want to learn more? Join us during the week of Feb.10-16 when NASA TV will focus on asteroids! http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/WISE/main/index.html
