Project Title: Comets
For our project this year we plan to write a program about a comet. We were curious about how big and how fast a comet would have to be to knock earth free of the suns hold on it. We decided that our curiosity would be a good idea for our supercomputing project. We plan on writing a program that models the effect of a comet hitting the earth. We plan to use variables such as how big the comet is, how fast it is going, the direction of it's approach, and where it hit earth to try to model the effects as accurately as possible.
