The Asteroid Stage in Solar 2
The Asteroid stage is the first stage in Solar 2. You will control a small rock flying through space. This is the most limited of the stages, considering you are capable of directly influencing other celestial objects the least while as an Asteroid. In terms of missions and other tasks, however, the Asteroid stage is still more populated than the Black Hole stage in this regard. You will find links to the mission guides below and tips and a video on progressing to the next stage of Planet below.

Fun ideas While You Are an Asteroid
Due to your incredibly small mass, you are capable of propelling yourself to insanely high speeds, faster than capable of being reached by simple key-based acceleration, by slingshotting yourself through the gravity wells of larger objects like stars or even Black Holes. Your high speed means massive damage against an unshielded object.
Collide with evolving or newly developed planets to create your own mass extinction event.
Knock other asteroids around, into other planets or stars for the above purposes, or gain some mass and use your newly formed gravity well to pull other asteroids along with you to make a storm of projectiles against some hapless planet.
Asteroid -> Small Planet Progression
Progression from the Asteroid stage towards the Small Planet stage is the easiest and quickest stage transition in Solar 2. In order to make the leap to this next stage, you will need to grow larger by running into other asteroids until you reach 20 mass.
Tips for Asteroid progression:
The methods used to gain enough mass to hit Small Planet are relatively straightforward. As mentioned above, you simply have to collide with other asteroids to take in their mass. The larger you become, the less speed you need to eat the other space rocks since there is more force behind each collision.
You can’t lose mass while an asteroid, however, you can be easily destroyed by colliding into any planets or stars. You can destroy space ships in a collision without taking any damage, however, nomad ships will target you even if only nearby, although red hostile lifeforms will ignore you unless their planet was recently hit by another asteroid.
