Scientists have figured out which regions are likely to fall into the Earth.

Jorge Zuluaga and Mario Sucerquia, researchers at the University of Antioquia in Colombia, used a device named “Gravitational Ray Tracing (GRT)” to identify areas of the asteroids that were most likely to fall, taking advantage of the asteroids that fell on different parts of the Earth. Colombian scientists; Russia, Canada, and northern European countries are at great risk of asteroid depletion. However, this does not mean that other parts of the world are safe. According to calculations, almost no place is fully secure.

Scientists use the GRT to calculate the likelihood of collision of meteoroids and other objects by looking at other parameters of the planets, such as attraction and atmosphere. As a result of the investigations, we arrive at the conclusion that polar regions contain a greater risk the meteorite ore. In addition, the Arctic region carries a much greater risk due to its position that Earth has during its circular motion around the Sun.

According to the research, the Asian continent, which includes our country, has a lower risk than other regions. Apart from that, Africa, South America, and equator are reaching to the result that the remaining places in the tropical zone also have a low risk. Finally, scientists said that if the meteorites approaching our planet enter the atmosphere near the noon, they may fall in the vicinity of the equator.

The meteor that fell to Michigan this week opened a huge hole in the ice-bearing lake, and the enthusiast began collecting the first fragments of this meteor. Chelyabinsk meteorite belonging to Russia on February 5, 2013, is very popular on the market. The largest piece weighing 654 kg was removed from the Chebarkul Lake.
