#video of the day | NASA created a simulation of the behavior of the meteorite in the earth's atmosphere

falling on our planet constantly. Some reach the surface, but most are still burning in the atmosphere. found today the meteorite is considered a "Goba", weight of 65 tonnes, and the volume is 9 cubic meters. All in all, on the Ground for one day only falls about 5-6 tons of meteorites, and for the year their total mass reaches an impressive 2000 tons. Space Agency NASA with the help of the Pleiades supercomputer generated video showing what happens to a meteorite falling at the speed of 20 kilometers per second through the earth's atmosphere.

Burning up in the atmosphere of the Earth 3D-model of the meteorite was created by specialists of the NASA Advanced Supercomputing division, created in the framework of the program for the study of the meteorite menace (Asteroid Threat Assessment Project). Such high-precision simulation will help scientists to calculate the scale of the destruction, which can cause a meteor, and it is also possible to try to minimize such destruction in the future. The size of the meteorite presented in the simulation, roughly comparable to those that fell on Chelyabinsk in February 2013.
