Ancient Space Rubble
Asteroids are rocky fragments left over from the formation our the solar system about 4.6 billion years ago. Most of these chunks of space rubble, sometimes called minor planets, can be found orbiting the Sun in a belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. The Asteroid Belt or Main Belt probably contains millions of asteroids.

Volcanoes are a Blast: Working with Simple Equations
Grade Level: 6-8
Lesson Time: Less Than 30 Minutes
Solar System Body: Earth, Asteroids, Earth's Moon, Enceladus
Mission: ARM (Asteroids), Cassini (Saturn), Earth Science (Earth), Lunar Recon Orbiter (Earth's Moon)

Short Description: Students examine the famous Krakatoa explosion, asteroid impacts on the moon and geysers on Enceladus (a moon of Saturn) using three equations that describe the height of the plume and initial velocity to answer questions about the speed of the debris and terminal height.
