Can asteroid be used to give an idea of the area of the universe by the means of judging the sped of the space rock and its trajectory

no,they mostly come from our own solar system and are banged around so that the trajectory doesn't show where they originated

It would be difficult to use an asteroid's trajectory in getting an idea of the area of the universe. This is because scientists can't tell their exact source of origin by the time they get near the earth.
