Heavenly Bodies and Shooting Stars
By
Stella M. Turk MBE

Shooting star

Awe-filled to awful

'Twinkle, twinkle little star

How I wonder what you are'.

Heavenly bodies, once gazed upon with awe,

Are now candidates for future space war.

When Earth was struck by a meteorite

Dinosaurs were in extinction plight

Now shooting stars are shot from Earth

Hoping they’ll give it a very wide berth.

Shooting star

 

 

Authors notes

A description of the technology was given on the 'Today' programme on Radio 4 this morning.
