Somebody mention "large solid object" in space. But large object can not be solid (consisting of atoms), because own weight of this object create high pressure inside: p=ngR/2 (n=density, g=gravity on surface,R=radius of the object)and this pressure crushes atoms, squizing electrons into nuclei - and then atomic object becomes neutron object: p+e=neutron.

Larger (more massive) object has higher pressure, inside which crushes even neutrons and the object then collapses futher. We call such object a black hole.

So there is no way of having large object to remain solid.
