Speed Comparison – Jet Airliner vs. Small Astronomical Bodies
Audience: 3rd grade and older
In the first view, this slide illustrates the difference in speed between a car and an airplane. In the second view, the speed of an airplane is compared to that of two interstellar objects, Oumuamua and Bennu. A third view shows the size difference between these two bodies and an average airplane.
Key messages: Asteroids move much faster than airplanes; and are also much bigger.
