Expert response from Jennifer Heldmann:
Very creative design!  It is good that you have listed all of the equipment you will need to conduct your experiment.  This is a great model of the LCROSS mission.  Good experimental design to conduct the experiment at several different angles.  How will you measure these angles?  Also how will you measure how much material is ejected from your crater?  Good luck with the experiment - and remember to be safe!
