Vizualizing meteorites [Knowledge]
posted December 5 2013 13:12.33 by spic0m




Thousands of meteorites have collided with the Earth since 2500 BC. 45,716 have been recorded. Only 1,107 have been seen falling.

BOLIDES, by Carlo Zapponi, is an attempt to visualize and explore the meteorites that have collided with the Earth. The visualization focuses mainly on meteorites that were eye-witnessed when falling and hitting the ground.

Most meteorite falls are recovered on the basis of eye-witness accounts of the fireball or the impact of the object on the ground. Meteorites fall with virtually equal probability everywhere on the Earth, eye-witnessed meteorites tend to be concentrated in areas with high human population densities such as Europe, Japan, and northern India.
