Fireballs – American Meteor Society

This exceptionally bright fireball trail was photographed with a fish-eye camera at a Czech Republic station of the European Fireball Network on January 21, 1999. Monitored by three stations of this network, the luminous trail is measured to begin at an altitude of 81.9 kilometers and covered 71.1 kilometers in 6.7 seconds. It is thought likely that a small (a few hundred grams) meteorite survived this fiery fall to Earth and landed near the Czech-Poland border. Picture courtesy of P. Spurny , (Astronomical Institute, Ondrejov Observatory).

Newton’s Third Law of Motion

A force is a push or a pull that acts upon an object as a results of its interaction with another object. Forces result from interactions! As discussed in Lesson 2, some forces result from contact interactions (normal, frictional, tensional, and applied forces are examples of contact forces) and other forces are the result of action-at-a-distance interactions (gravitational, electrical, and magnetic forces). According to Newton, whenever objects A and B interact with each other, they

Corrupt Government


There is no entity that is
more obnoxious than government. No entity kills more. No entity plunders
more. No one entity violates more individual rights more often, with more
impunity. And none spews more propaganda and lies. History proves this
beyond a shadow of a doubt. Be it a monarchy, oligarchy, union of
socialist republics, or a communist Nation-State like the people’s
republic of china, you can rest
