(WWJ) – On March 4th a big hunk of space junk collided with the moon, and scientists are excited to see what they can learn.
The old rocket booster collision is an accidental experiment for scientists, and many are excited to see what can be learned from the rare occasion.
Mike Murray of the Delta College Planetarium in Bay City joined WWJ’s Erin Vee on this edition of “All Over the Space” to talk about what it all means.
Murray says “there’s a lot we can learn when we get to witness the effects of an impact on any other body in the solar system.”
In fact, scientists have made that happen on purpose before, just to study the fallout. He discusses that, and much more on this week's show.
