Interim: We decided to change our experiment just before the interim was sent out, so we have yet to make much progress. We are planning on creating a model on the best method to deflect an asteroid that is approaching the Earth. The distance from the Earth, velocity, strength of explosives, location of impact, chance of breaking up, and rotation of the asteroid are all adjustable variables. The model will show the best location of impact to both deflect the asteroid and prevent the asteroid from breaking up.
