The Hubble telescope has captured some stunning images showcasing the early stages of an asteroid breaking apart. The crumbling asteroid, officially known as P/2013 R3, was first noticed in September. A follow-up observation on with the Keck Telescope located in Hawaii revealed that the fuzzy-looking object was actually at least three distinct parts. The slow speed of the objects combined with the fact that new pieces are still emerging seems to rule out a collision or impact with another asteroid. This is a rock, said David Jewitt of the University of California, which spearheaded the investigation.
