In this clever, visually stimulating claymation video, the astronomers at the Royal Observatory Greenwich explain the difference between each type of space rock.

The claymation video, titled 'Space Rocks,' is a delightful way to teach kids, teens and adults about Earth science and astronomy. The skillful animation brings space rocks to life in funny and creative ways -- for example, in one vignette, anthropomorphic rocks sprout legs and run around an Olympic-style race track. For anyone who has ever wondered about the difference between asteroids, comets, meteors and meteorites, this claymation video has the answer.

There's a really encouraging movement to create video channels that offer education for people of all ages, delivering knowledge in digestible, entertaining formats. It's especially wonderful when scientific institutes join in on this endeavor. This claymation video is a perfect example.
