Astronomy news

Astronomy students have been making craters and experimenting with high speed imaging lately. As well as looking at the nature of the universe from a conceptual and qualitative perspective, students learn the underlying principles and mathematics of how the universe works. While studying the solar system, students learned about the formation of lunar craters. The goal with this experiment was to look for a mathematical relationship between the kinetic energy of the impactor and the length of the rays (bright streaks) surrounding the craters. This is a direct link with lunar and planetary crater formation. The photograph shows some of the craters from the experiment.
