Expert Response from Jennifer Heldmann:
This is a good idea to look at different angles and determine the effects on the amount of material ejected out of the crater.  Can you provide more details on the "launcher" that is in the diagram?  How will you launch the impactor?  Very good idea to include the safety trigger, too.
