The formation of the solar system left trillions of bits of debris behind. This debris comes in two broad varieties: asteroids, which are made up mostly of rocky materials, and comets, which are made up mostly of water and methane ice. This debris represents both a near-term danger and a far-term treasure trove of resources for future space-faring cultures.
