There was a German boy about 2 years ago who was hit in the thumb by a meteor about the size of a pencil eraser. He was only slightly injured.

And a woman lying in bed back in the mid-50's was struck by a rock the size of her fist; she also survived.

Of course, most meteors explode or vaporize passing through the atmosphere; the remains are dust. So if you've ever walked through a cloud of dust, you've probably been hit by a meteor, or at least, by the remains of one.

And there are several unexplained aircraft crashes for which no cause has ever been determined. The chances of an aircraft being destroyed by a meteor are astronomical - however, meteors are themselves "astronomical", and as long as we keep flying and meteors keep falling, eventually a meteor WILL hit an aircraft in flight. It's only a matter of time.

Well, there are many theories of how the dinosaurs were wiped out, and different reasons to believe different theories. Most people believe the dinosaurs were wiped out by a meteor because it makes the most sense. There was a huge crater found that people believe is the spot where the meteor hit. It also makes sense because of the Loch Ness Monster. Why? When the meteor hit, all the water dinos must have gone under water, so they wouldn`t be killed by the meteor. The Loch Ness Monster is probably a Pleasieousaurus left over from millions of years ago. But no one will ever know for sure what killed the dinosaurs...
