The amateur data scientist and her projects


Once a data source is identified and the questions answered, deeper questions can be asked, such as, when we see a binary crater (two craters, same meteor), what is the average distance between the two craters. This will also help better assess population risks, and how many billion dollars should NASA spend on meteor tracking programs.
In any case, as a starter, I did a bit of research and found the following data, with a map showing impact craters on Earth.
