Explosions in Space
Name: burbank school
Date: 1993 - 1999
Could a man made satellite explode in space and what would happen if it did?
It would fly apart into pieces. The pieces would travel a long
distance since there is no or very little gas to slow them down.
There would also be no sound, but there could be light. Tkhere
would have to be something inside the satellite to make it explode.
Things have exploded in space: rockets, satellites.
