    Because they need to know what it's made out of and when it is ever going to hit the earth so they'll know in advance.

    The scientific interest in asteroids is due largely to their status as the remnant debris from the inner solar system formation process. Because some of these objects can collide with the Earth, asteroids are also important for having significantly modified the Earth's biosphere in the past. They will continue to do so in the future. In addition, asteroids offer a source of volatiles and an extraordinarily rich supply of minerals that can be exploited for the exploration and colonization of our solar system in the twenty-first century.

    Asteroids represent the bits and pieces left over from the process that formed the inner planets, including Earth. Asteroids are also the sources of most meteorites that have struck the Earth's surface and many of these meteorites have already been subjected to detailed chemical and physical analyses. If certain asteroids can be identified as the sources for some of the well-studied meteorites, the detailed knowledge of the meteorite's composition and structure will provide important information on the chemical mixture, and conditions from which the Earth formed 4.6 billion years ago. During the early solar system, the carbon-based molecules and volatile materials that served as the building blocks of life may have been brought to the Earth via asteroid and comet impacts. Thus the study of asteroids is not only important for studying the primordial chemical mixture from which the Earth formed, these objects may hold the key as to how the building blocks of life were delivered to the early Earth.

    Because they are scientists.


    They want to know more about it so they're studying about asteroids. It's like they want to discover something.

    The biggest reason as to why we study asteroids is because they can tell us about the origins of the Solar System, as they are considered to be the building blocks of the planets. In planetary formation, lumps of rock, such as asteroids, coalesce to create minor planets and eventually planets

    why do scientist study asteroids and meteors?


    They Because some of these objects can collide with the Earth, asteroids are also important for having significantly modified the Earth's biosphere in the past.
