it is not "due to newton" that the meteorite gets the same energy as the earth from this impact. newton just described the law. he didnt invented it.

I figured it would jog more memories, for those who were a little foggy on third law pairs if I put Newton's name in there.

And you appear to have misread the text:
"Newton's Third Law pairs" is one object. It does not say "due to Newton..." These laws are collectively referred to as Newton's Laws, due to an abundance of Third Laws. This has been the case for centuries, and through those centuries exactly nobody has believed that Newton "did invented" them. While the original phrasing is awkward, it is nevertheless correct. Another way to word it would be "A consequence of Newton's Third Law is that.."

thats the same mistake.
it is not that way, because newton said - newton said that, because it's that way. (thats a big difference). it is that way because the world acts like that. it is not a consequence of something newton said.. that would imply that it weren't like that, if newton didn't msde the law.

Can you imaging if this meteor had exploded over america. There would be laws saying that space is banned and everything that comes near earth gets a nuke launched at its ass. Thank god Russians don't over-react like Americans do.

Oh lawd that was terrible. Because the only way to protect America from future meteor strikes is to ban space ops.

If anything we would be MORE involved in space. Maybe the government would finally give NASA the funding they deserve.

I get your joke but my pic says what needs to be said.
We'd probably just call FEMA so they could do something about it a month or two after it happens.
In all seriousness though we'd just do more disaster relief funds if it landed anywhere but the center of the country in open plains.

Better ;)

A meteoroid burns up before it hits Earth. A meteor is the stuff burning off it. A meteorite lands intact.

I heard from many sources that Russia had a meteor, a meteoroid, a meteor shower, and a meteorite all in like a day and was like "Holy ****! What's going on in Russia?" I'm starting to think this was all really one incident...

No and not that we know of, but this also happend on the same day (yesterday) that a larger meteor, 50 meters in diameter, passed within 27 miles of the Earth's surface. That one wouldve caused a bit more damage.

Completely unrelated incidents, but still interesting.

Well, a meteor is just a smaller asteroid. Same stuff, and researchers have gotten their nerd paws on a lot of bits and pieces

The one that crashed into Russia is actually quite a bit larger than the average major size of space rocks that collide with earth, which is 4 meters, once per year. But still, size of a mountain or not, these were pretty big compared to what we're used to.

Meteors and asteroids are different. Asteroids GREW from the begging of the universe, they weren't ever really apart of anything. But meteors is just random space debris.

Seriously? Asteroids are chunks of rock floating in space. There is no set difference in definition between rocks of different sizes, unless they're in a stable orbit around a larger body. Those are called satellites, or moons. For instance, Mars has two satellites worth noting; neither is symmetrical. In fact, they look like nothing so much as giant space potatoes.

Now, it's important to note that there are general definitions differentiating space rocks of different sizes-- those smaller than ten meters in diameter at its narrowest are usually called "meteoroids" in the scientific community, but this is a fairly loose definition. I am no expert, but the wonders of Wikipedia have helped me make my point. I refer you to the article in question here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asteroid#Terminology

Asteroids have been asteroids for the entirety of the universe, they haven't been anything else. They're giant things of material from all over the universe, from all of time. Meteors however, fall off from planets, moons, anything made of such material. Asteroids have many different layers, that have build up, very slowly, over about 12-14 billions years. From the nucleus that is from the start of everything, to the out crust that is today.

You seem to forget that EVERYTHING in this universe came from an origin. There is no such thing as anything that is the same now as it was trillions of years ago. Everything, and I mean everything, that exists in space now was forged in the heart of a star somewhere.

I know, but that's on a quantum level. Then that get's into quantum physics, atoms make up molecules, molecules make up everything else. if scientists used the logic you're running to now, no progress will ever be made ever, because everything is the same.
Iron is the same thing as dirt if you look at it at a quantum level. But if you look at it for what the molecules make up, one's dirt, one's iron.

So, you're ignoring the fact that, when you get down to the average composition (iron, titanium, nickel, etc) of space-borne stone fragments, they're nearly identical? Save for size and shape, they are pretty much one and the same.
