Could an asteroid knock the moon off its orbit?

WRITTEN BY: Will Hector

This is a very entertaining take on the type of childhood questioning sometimes required for serious science. I mean, how else could scientists conjure the ideas they do without retaining some of their child-like sense of wonder.

So, invite your inner child for a two-minute stroll down memory lane of childhood wonderings and you might be surprised at what you could learn--or what science you might imagine. No pressure, though--this is pure entertainment.
