Earlier in the year, NASA’s weather telescopes explored a mysterious meteorite to wander through the atmosphere and take a dip in the Pacific Ocean. What was the surprise of the team in NASA when meteorites rarely lost most of their material during the entry into the Earth’s atmosphere?
NASA’s planetary scientist, Mark Fries, points out that a unique meteorite near the Earth can go on our planet for a long time. While entering the tremendous speed in the hot atmosphere of the Earth, space rocks were not found to crack, break or burn – whatever is common with some other meteor entry. In an interview, Fries said, “It’s a special, hard with your normal meteor.”
However, NASA has never ever released space rocks from the sea. Therefore, this is the first time that the Premier Space Agency will try to tamper with meteorites from the ocean bed. The area where the rock has landed is shallow and goes up to 330 feet.
Since NASA will trust an exploration vehicle named Nautilus to look for mysterious rocks. The vehicle is equipped with robotic screening with magnetic weapons, which will pull the meteorite, if it is metal in nature (meteor is usually filled with metals).
The unique qualities of this mysterious meteorite have excited the team to NASA. It is expected that this space rock will eventually bring forth the new mysteries of the universe which cannot be unveiled so far.
