Do you really believe the asteroid belt is stable all on a sudden just like that? What is this asteroid belt? According to Wickipedia, The asteroid belt is the region of the Solar System located roughly between the orbits of the planets Mars and Jupiter. It is occupied by numerous irregularly shaped bodies called asteroids or minor planets. The asteroid belt region is also termed the main belt to distinguish it from other concentrations of minor planets within the Solar System, such as the Kuiper belt and scattered disc. Between Mars and Jupiter, gravitational perturbations from the giant planet imbued the planetesimals with too much orbital energy for them to accrete into a planet. Collisions became too violent, and instead of sticking together, the planetesimals shattered. As a result, most of the main belt's mass has been lost since the formation of the Solar System. Some fragments can eventually find their way into the inner Solar System, leading to meteorite impacts with the inner planets. Now scientists are finding clues that this asteoid belt serves as a hidden UFO base from where extra terrestrial civilizatilons watch the earth civilization very closely. The asteroid belt is also rich in mnerals and energy. The high population of the main belt makes for a very active environment, where collisions between asteroids occur frequently (on astronomical time scales). Collisions between main belt bodies with a mean radius of 10 km are expected to occur about once every 10 million years. But the collissions are actually well controlled. The belt serves as major UFO bases.
