Bigger Than Life
Meteorites are so large and they travel so fast.
The biggest and heaviest meteorites on Earth was found in Hoba, Namibia. Some meteorites travel at the speed of a car. They are the largest and the heaviest thing in the solar system. They often enter earths atmosphere at velocities from 11 or 70 km per second. I think that it is really cool that velocity changes.
All meteorites are from inside our solar system.
The largest known meteorite is 2.7 long and 60 tons in weight.
Can you imagine finding a meteorite this big!
