A meteor that reaches the earth after 20 million years
Botswana: Probably for the first time in human history, the path of a meteor has been observed before it fell to the earth, which traveled about 20 million miles before falling to the earth.
It is named LA 2018, which was divided into several pieces before falling to the ground on June 2, 2018, and a part of it is found in the Kalahari forest in Botswana. It is believed that meteorite was five feet tall as a big stone
The stone, weighing 12566 pounds, was traveling at a speed of 37,000 miles per hour for the last time. meteorite flared in an atmosphere of 27 km from the earth and was also 20 thousand times brighter than the full moon
Christian Wolf, associated with the Australian national university research school of astrology and astrophysics, has done research on it.
On June 2, 2018, his path was seen and a collision with the land was predicted and he immediately hit the land of Botswana. It was monitored by the Catalina sky survey observatory in the university of Arizona. This center makes data of small rocks and large rocks colliding on the earth
This is the second time in human history that a meteorite has been seen before it hits the earth. The first meteorite was TC III of 2008, discovered ten years ago.
As soon as the Kalahari forest staff helped to find it, but despite a considerable search, only a piece of 18g and a half-inch was found. Meteor has been designated a national treasure by the Botswana government, but since then 23 more meteors have been discovered.
According to experts, it is broken by the second-largest meteorite vista in the solar system. Vista is found in the astronomical belt between Mars and planet Jupiter. Zircon particles are also found in the meteorite and it is believed to be four and a half billion years old. Research on it will help to understand many of the secrets of the solar system. visit robinguide.com
