Pie Chart for Main-Belt Asteroid Masses

I looked up enough asteroid masses to use them to make this pie chart. I now have three reactions.

First: oh, that’s why only Ceres is round!

Second: who was stupid enough to name an asteroid Europa? That name is taken!

Third: wow — those small ones sure do make up a lot of the total!
