Ever encountered a meteor fallen in your backyard or came across stories of Meteor Burnout in a distinct land, wiping out large number of lives? Surely, you must have. And this is no way different from a massive heat explosion that we usually know about.
Based on the crucial findings of many science giants, we have tried our best to visualize what a meteor must be and from where it appears in the space.
In the midst of our quest, the nature had its call and we witnessed chunks of rocks breaking from the atmosphere to Earth’s surface. It was rather a daunting task to predict clearly about the phenomenon behind Meteor Burnout and how largely it can impact on Earth’s environment.
Of late, scientists conceptualized the true nature of meteors and the root cause of Meteor Burnout. It was successfully found that meteors are the chunks of comets and asteroids orbiting around the sun at extremely high speeds. Massive speeds that meteor travels at initiate friction between atmosphere and its surface. This intense friction causes meteor to become extremely hot, leads it to break up into pieces big or small and then, explode into cosmic space dust. Although the size of meteor may be quite large at the time of its break down, by the time it reaches into Earth’s vicinity its size reduces to that of a small stone.
Sometimes the size is comparatively larger that could make through the atmosphere and to the earth’s surface. Such larger chunks of meteors are called meteorites. The breaking down of burning meteors into the earth’s environment is termed as Meteor Burnout.
It is very important to understand the science behind Meteor Burnout that we can visualize from our surroundings.
SDRO has come up with an innovative learning session through Stellar Curiosity Workshop that enables you to understand about Meteor Burnout in the easiest ways possible for you under expert supervision of our SDRO team.
