The first interstellar meteor to strike Earth has been confirmed by the United States Space Command

According to a recently disclosed United States Space Command document, researchers discovered the first known interplanetary meteor to have hit Earth. An interstellar meteor is a space rock that originates from outside our solar system.

An interstellar meteor is a space rock that originates from outside our solar system, and this particular meteor is known as CNEOS 2014-01-08, entering the Eath's atmosphere on Jan. 8, 2014. 

Dr. Joel Mozer, the chief scientist of Space Operations Command, said he reviewed a report about the emergence of the 2014 meteor from "an unbound hyperbolic orbit" or interstellar space, confirming analysis from Harvard University experts Amir Siraj and Abraham Loeb that accurately indicated an interstellar occurrence, 

Amir Siraj, who recognized the item as an interstellar meteor in a 2019 article he coauthored as an undergraduate at Harvard University, was taken aback by the discovery.

 

Siraj and Loeb presented their theory with "99.999% confidence" that the size, trajectory and excess speed ruled out the 2014 meteor from having originated within our solar system. 

Loeb and Siraj have been unable to get 바카라사이트윈 their findings revealed in a journal as a result of their knowledge got here from NASA’s CNEOS database, which does not disclose data akin to how correct the readings are.

They said in 2019 that it probably came "from the deep interior of a planetary system or a star in the thick disk of the Milky Way galaxy".
