    I don't know of any comets or asteroids which have had satellite spacecraft orbit them. Frankly, considering the masses of those, it would be quite a fete.

    Comets have been impacted by spacecraft, and the "tail" of Halley was sampled. At least asteroid have been photographed "up close", and so was Neptune, by Voyager 2. The answer to your question is Pluto.

    Assuming that a spacecraft lands on an asteroid and bores a hole perpendicular to its surface; it is noticed that the sun shines straight down to the bottom of the hole. Another hole is bored 10 miles "north' of the first hole at the same time, but it is noticed that the Sun makes a 20 degree angle to rod placed into that hole - what is the circumference and radius of that asteriod?
