As American Automobile Manufacturer’s stock prices nosedive on Monday October 6th, ironically a car size meteor tumbles toward the Earth over a countryside quarter of Sudan on the same day. Once the meteor entered Earth’s atmosphere it created a huge fireball that had the equivalent explosion force of over a kiloton of TNT. The meteor is not believed to actually hit Earth before it disintegrated into the sky.
This was an excellent opportunity for scientists to test the accuracy of new celestial object tracking methods in the event that a larger object was to threaten the Earth. There have been few witnesses to the event because of the remoteness of where the meteor fell.
