Cool Meteor Video (again)

Cool, a meteor fell somewhere in Sweden. Here is the video:

Don’t worry, we are not doomed. ^_^ Most meteors burn up in the atmosphere, and arrive on Earth very cold. Note, the heating is caused by compression of air when the meteor enters at high speed. If it is not large enough, the meteor falls cold, if it is large, well, it burns. Anyways, most disintegrate, and a very few are so large that they cause mass extinctions, which probably happened 65 million years ago, making the dinosaurs go bye bye (so sad 😦 ), which will happen in like a gazillion years later. Cool stuff.
