Make your own meteorite crater – comparing experiment with the real world
This post shows you how to make your own meteorite crater – it’s pretty easy. There are also many interesting questions we can ask of our experiments with craters, like “how do they compare with real craters?“
This may seem a bit geeky, but while you’re at the beach why not check out some of the things that like to live at beaches, or in the sea, the air, beneath the sand or on rocks. There are other things like waves that are pretty cool, especially if you like surfing, boogie-boarding or sailing, or even just looking at them to see how they work. Scientists ask questions like;
“what is it?”
“how does it work or how does it live?”
“how does it react to other things going on at the beach (including what people do)?”
In this post, I’m going to talk about TIME and take you on an adventure. I’m a GEOLOGIST so I talk about TIME a fair bit. The TIME I talk about is usually in thousands or millions or billions of years. These are really big numbers so how do I know what they mean; what is a million years really like?
