Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 38 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, November 23, 1974 Ask Andy METEORS AND METEORITES Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Charles Hightower, age 12, of Montgomery, Ala for his question How do meteors and meteorites differ17 Europeans and Americans live on different continents, of course, all of them are people Asians live in Asia and Australians live on the far side of the globe All of them. naturally, are people who just happen to be at home in different localities The same thing might be said of non living meteors and meteorites Meteors are travelers, meteorites settled residents of the nlanpt parth r Both meteors and meteorites originate out there in the trackless spaces between the planets They come in assorted sizes com- parable to grains of sand, pebbles and enormous boulders Astronomers suspect that these solid chunks were formed when the planets were born, which means that they date back through some 5 billion years During all their carefree space traveling days, they are called meteors They inherited this name from the old word meteor, which at one time meant any unusual event that occurred in the sky including shooting stars and weather events This is how come the study of weather is called meteorology From this clue, we can see that meteors are meteors because they belong up there or out there above or beyond the earth In countless numbers, these cold dark chunks zoom around the solar svstem. perhaps faster than 200 miles per second. And from time to time, numbers of large and small meteors are bound to collide with pass- ing planets. When a meteor comes close enough to feel the earth's gravity, it is pulled down to the surface On the way down, it must travel hundreds of miles through the at- mosphere This may seem like an airy nothing, but its gaseous molecules force the speeding space traveler to slow down Some of its speed energy is converted into heat energy. The plunging meteor heats up and lights up We see its brief moments of blazing glorv as a so called falling star As a rale, it is a tiny meteor that burns to dusty ashes long before it reaches the ground. But a meteor of a few pounds is big enough to survive this fall It lands with a thud on the ground or a splash in the sea This is the dramtic moment when its name changes from meteor to meteorite. A meteorite is a grounded metoer whose space-travel- ing days are done forever. It lies with the other stones of the earth, forever trapped by the earth's gravity. Numerous meteors burn to ashes and drift down, adding tons of meteoric dust to the weight of the world. Others plunk down and become peb- ble size meteorites. A few rare meteorites weight 60 tons or more And scientists suspect that in the remote past the earth was struck by whopping meteorites, big enough to make craters a mile or more wide Your horoscope By tone Dixon Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Nov. 23, 1974 Advanced elements of the French Armored Division entered Strasbourg 30 years ago in 1944 during the Se- cond World War Strasbourg first was taken by France in 1681 under Louis XIV but was surrendered to the Germans in 1870.
