This week for science we watched a video on the impact of asteroids and the massive numbers of them that cross the path of the earth. It was astonishing to see how many asteroids cross the path of the earths orbit. There are asteroid the size of Manhattan island floating out in space. The show was mostly about a geologist named Gene Shoemaker and his quest to prove his theory of impact and how he had dreamed to got to the moon an test it. It was a great video. One of my favorite parts was when they showed a comet’s impact on Jupiter.
The show was officially called National Geographic: Asteroids Deadly Impact
