Asteroids in the Weinbaum universe

I finally finished off Mars for the Weinbaum RPG - did so by ditching a couple of thousand words which let me tie it off more effectively and will hopefully make it a more interesting read.

I need to write something about the asteriods in the Weinbaum universe, which is a little tricky since none of the stories go there and they are only mentioned twice, both times VERY briefly.

Since this is a fairly hard science universe I can't really justify breathable atmospheres etc. so descriptions will have a certain sameness -I think I'm going to confine myself to a list of a few that are interesting for one reason or another. Say the the first four discovered and a couple of the really eccentric ones such as Eros and possible one of the Earth-grazers. Preferably ones that were known in the 1930s, or could easily be discovered then. Any nominations?
