History

One of Lantea's moons was destroyed long ago and left asteroids around the other moon. (SGA: "First Strike") Jenny theorized that Abydos may have been a moon or a large asteroid. (Stargate) The Kepler space probe detected Martin's Ship moving past Mars, JPL thought it was an asteroid until they found strange energy readings and discovered it was increasing in speed. (SG1: "Wormhole X-Treme!") The Goa'uld sent an asteroid with a core of Naquadah towards Earth, knowing that if they tried to destroy it the Naquadah would cause a bigger explosion and still destroy Earth. SG-1 used a hyperdrive to take the asteroid through the Earth and save the planet. (SG1: "Fail Safe") The Wraith harvested asteroids from the Lantean System and sent them towards Lantea to destroy the proximity Nuclear bombs placed in orbit. (SGA: "The Siege, Part 2")

One of the asteroids around Lantea was sent towards an Asuran Stargate satellite to disrupt the beam it was firing on Atlantis. (SGA: "First Strike") When Atlantis was drifting through space, it passed through part of an asteroid belt so Puddle Jumpers were sent ahead to destroy the larger asteroids. (SGA: "Adrift")
