Small asteroids hit Earth almost every day,
and are completely harmless, breaking up in the atmosphere,
but US space agency, NASA have been thinking
about what they'd do if a bigger one came along.
, and asteroid hurtling towards Earth and you have to come up with a
plan to stop it. How about crashing a spacecraft into the asteroid to
not get out of the way? It might sound a bit crazy but that's
actually the plan from NASA. The asteroid NASA want to hit will be
approaching Earth in October 2022. And then again in 20 24th. It's made
up of two different parts, ... But they only need to target the small
asteroid to stop is being hit. It's the first ever mission to change the
direction of an asteroid called the double asteroid redirection test or
if you want to be quicker... Bart. Plans for the spacecraft got the
thumbs up and they are about to start designing it. So how would
this all work? It's expected to be about the size of a fridge. The
spacecraft will shoot itself at the asteroid literally crashing into it
at 50 times the speed of a racing car. The force of the crash would
physically knock the asteroid off in a different direction. It could be a
space tackier moment in history! Thank you.
Next, It's times tables, but not as you might know it.
Students from more than 50 schools across the North East of England

They are fighting it out in a series of head-to-head rounds to become
crowned the supreme ultimate rock hero. Meet Baz winter otherwise
known as maths teacher Mr Reddy who created times table Rock stars used
in 5000 schools across the UK. I was bad at maths in year five but now
I've really improved. The rock thing, that helps as well? Yes. Why
is that? It creates inspiration. Then it was time for the grand
final. Gave it up for Nadal! How do you feel? Excellent. My family is
going to be proud. His prize? A helicopter ride above Leeds. How do
they have to inspire you guys? I hope his amazing performance today
inspires children in his school and this region to be incredible
mathematicians. More rock and roll for you now.
Coldplay fan who went to the band's concert in Dublin got a little more
than he had been expecting. Rob had been crowd-surfing in his
wheelchair, when he was spotted by Coldplay's Chris Martin,
and invited on stage. The crowd seemed pretty happy too,
and gave him huge cheers
