Meteorite filmed by a skydiver – level 1

14-06-2023 15:00

Here is some news from Norway.

A man is skydiving. Something flies by. It looks like a black rock.

The man thinks that it is a meteorite. This happened in 2012.

Most meteorites burn up when they enter the atmosphere. However, some meteorites survive. The man is working with scientists. They are trying to find the meteorite.

Difficult words: burnup (to be destroyed by fire), survive (to continue to exist), scientist (clever person who is an expert in something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What are the implications of finding this meteorite?
