A Meteorite Came Crashing Down To Earth But Did Not Cause Any Damage

Remains from a fireball (that flew across on the East Coast in the sky in the US last week) are still to be found, but a different meteor over India made its ultimate landing location far simpler to find. The local people discovered a muddy, massive hole in the state of Bihar in a paddy field. At the bottom was what seems to be a primeval example of a metal-comprised rock from the space.

A statement from executives comprises pics of the big rock, which is claimed to have magnetic characteristics, and while researchers have yet to verify that it is certainly a meteorite, it surely fits the explanation.

The meteorite, while rather huge in terms of the remains left by a number of fireballs, did not precisely do a lot of damage when it hit the earth. When the images of the impact site by the rock were seen, it created a noteworthy hole in the mud, creating a noticeable crater and ejecting a bit of mud.

Researchers can verify the identity of the rock, although considering the photographic proof it is clear the rock either is the outcome of an extremely elaborate hoax or came from space. Considering that the rock is presently being managed by a museum, and will apparently not find its way to the private collectors ready to shell out a huge amount, we will have to presume it is a genuine sample.

On a similar note, earlier researchers examining a meteorite piece (that fell on the planet in 2008) discovered proof that recommended it might have come from a Mercury-akin planet that no longer is present. The composition of the meteorite—the components it had, what proportions they are in—can normally direct us to where it arrived from, for example, the Mars or the moon. But there are a bunch of meteorites that have unidentified origins.
