Default The total mass of meteorites

In article , says...

....

Fascinating factoid on The Life Scientific the other day, claiming

the
energy in fastest heavy nuclei was the same as an Andy Murray serve.



Yea, I've heard or read similar analogies. Tis amazing how much momentum
nature can pack into a sub-atomic particle.


Google the "oh my god particle".

Am I read right? Is it really a single meteorite weights the mass of all

meteorites per year? How much mass do meteorite loose when burning in

the atmosphere?


Make that Russian one worth 10,000 tonnes.

Annual average influx is perhaps worth 50,000 tonnes (increasing).

Most of the influx comes from items well under 1 kg.

Yes, REAL suspected Black Holes can RiP you APART.!! But NOT in GR gtr Tivity.!! Because in GR Tivity you would be a POiNT ..and if you COULD have a mass, in GR, you would be a POiNT-mass.
