Anthony enjoys playing soccer, model rocketry, and flying remote planes. He'd like to become a physicist someday, stating that "physics, especially astrophysics, is very cool and something that I would like to pursue in the future."
Anthony's interest in astronomy made him wonder why different craters take on different shapes. He hypothesized that the angle of an incoming projectile as it strikes the ground might affect a crater's shape. He guessed that higher angles create more circular craters and lower angles create craters that are oblong.
Anthony designed a device to shoot an air rifle at adjustable angles into a container full of sand. He fired pellets into the sand at various angles, documenting the strike with video and digital photos. After analyzing these data, he found that his hypothesis was correct.
