Just ask! - This week's question to Tomorrow Today is from our viewer Agustin Onofre from Colombia.
Landing a probe on an asteroid? It's been done before, hasn't it? Nope. The last time space scientists landed a probe on a smaller celestial body, it was a comet. So what's the difference?
An aging chemical detonator caused a World War II bomb in western Germany to explode without an external trigger. The resulting crater had some residents mistaking the blast for a meteor.
The '69 moon landing was science-free. Until someone said, "they'd better have something to do." So they studied rocks.
