Where did you come from, where did you fall
SkyMapper project scientist Christopher Onken of ANU said that these last photographs have helped in finding fragments of the asteroid falling on Earth and understanding its origins in space. A team of international scientists found that fragments were found in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, a national park in the Kalahari Desert. This meteorite was named Motopi Pan. Scientists believe that the Motopi Pan was formed 4.324 billion years ago when the Veneneia Impact Basin was formed on the Vesta. In this incident Motopi Pan heated up and in the second incident Rheasilbia Impact it exited Vesta. (Photo: Christian Wolf and colleagues ANU)
Decided to travel 2 million years
Its isotopes were studied. These revealed the chemical texture and shape of the asteroid when it was not cracked in the atmosphere. The 2018 LA would have been 5 feet and would have traveled 22–23 million years into space before falling to Earth. Before entering the Earth’s atmosphere, its speed must have been 60 thousand km / h. Its resemblance to analesis was found in 2015 from the meteorite Sariçiçek that fell in Turkey. Both of them have been found to be derived from Vesta.
