Asgard is on spherical like other planets or planetoids. It exist as a flat landmass suspended in space, and has about the same top surface size as the continental United States.
Asgard does not rotate nor does it revolve around any known sun. The principles of day and night, the seasons and gravity appear to be mystical in nature.
Mass on Asgard: earth, wood, stone, steel, water and flesh is denser and heaver than that of Earth and therefore more durable.
Passage between the realms of Asgard is facilitated through numerous inter-dimensional portals. The only exception of the nine worlds is Midgard (Earth) which is reached from Asgard via Bifrost the rainbow bridge.
