3D model description

Asteroid 216 Kleopatra, located in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, is about 217 kilometers (135 miles) long and about 94 kilometers (58 miles) wide, or about the size of New Jersey. This dog bone-shaped asteroid is an apparent leftover from an ancient, violent cosmic collision. Kleopatra is one of several dozen asteroids whose coloring suggests they contain metal. A team of astronomers observing Kleopatra used the 305-meter (1,000-foot) telescope of the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico to bounce encoded radio signals off Kleopatra. Using sophisticated computer analysis techniques, they decoded the echoes, transformed them into images, and assembled a computer model of the asteroid's shape.
