Intergalactic Interloper Conversation Starters

  1. Imagine traveling through the asteroid belt in the Wow Machine. Would you travel in the same direction as the asteroids or the opposite one? What tools would use to help you navigate the almost invisible C-asteroids, and what tests would you do to to learn more about them?
  2. Scientists traced the path of the BZ asteroid backwards in time to learn that it must have come from somewhere else. What other objects in our solar system would you try this technique on and what do you think you might find?
  3. Make up your own additional asteroid types — some that might really exist based on the episode and some just for fun….Crunchy peanut butter chocolate chip asteroids incoming!! Bonus points for drawings or models of each!
