Speed of Light

# What if earth was hit by a meteor 30 meters wide traveling at a the speed of light?

###### Wiki User

Well,it would basicly turn the earth into a burning hot hell like venus.It would also have enough force to knock earth into another orbit.It doesn't matter though,the earth will be destroyed.Each particle in the meteor would carry around 30 trillion electron volts.Boi.

A meteor does not produce light, a shadow on the Earth is caused when the meteor blocks the Sun's rays. The meteor does this when it is placed in between the Sun and the Earth, this is called an eclipse.

well first you have to figure out how many meters are in one light year, then you should be able to take the 10000 meters per second that it is traveling and put that into the light years.

No. A meteor is the streak of light caused by a space rock passing through the atmosphere. IF the rock survives and hits the Earth, it is a meteorite. A meteor isn't the chunk of rock; it is the streak of light.

Exactly 299,792,458 meters per second - enough to go around the Earth 7 1/2 times in one second.

The friction between dust on a meteoroid and the Earth's atmosphere causes the light to shine, which is a meteor. When lots of meteroids hit Earth at similar times, a significant amount of meteors show in Earth, causing a meteor shower.

A meteor emits light, it burns from the friction with the atmosphere.

A flash of light appeared and a flaming meteor plummeted to the earth.

when the meteor is hiting the atmosphere the pressure when it gets in and the velocity it goes with comprimes and starts lightning in fire

Light, traveling at the speed of light, traverses the space between the sun and the Earth in 81/3 minutes.

80% of the speed of light in vacuum is 239,833,966.4 meters per second.

meteor light, meteor flight, meteor blight, meteor unite, meteor hight, meteor might, night, right, sight, tight etc.

same thing as a meteor. a ball of light thats visible and hits the earth or explodes in mid air

The speed of light in a vacuum is 299,792,458 meters/sec. It takes about 8 minutes for light from the sun to get to earth.

No... Technically a meteor will never hit earth, and there has never been a meteor to hit the earth. A "meteor"by definition is the incandescent light phenomenon only. This is produced by extreme pressures exerted on the meteoroid body as it enters Earth's atmosphere at tens of thousands of MPH. A meteor is only incandescent for a few seconds of brief flight until it blinks out and enters what science calls "dark flight". Then it continues to fall at terminal velocity until impacting the ground, at which point it's called a meteorite.

The fastest thing on earth is Light. Light travels at a speed on 186,000 miles per second, or 299,000,000 meters per second, so light is the fastest thing on earth

It takes about 8 minutes from light to travel from the Sun to the Earth.Light has the same speed from the Sun to Neptune as it is from the Sun to Earth, which is about 299,792,458 meters per second.

Ok. Space is a vacuum. The sun gives light. The earth receives the light. Light travels through space in order to get there.

Light always travels at the speed of light. The only time that's 299,792,458 meters per second ( " c " ) is when it's traveling in vacuum.

light takes approximately 8 minutes to travel from the sun to the earth. even though it is traveling extremely fast, the earth is about 93million miles away from the sun, so if you think about it 8 minutes is pretty quick

Assuming Earth and Uranus were aligned with the Sun, light would take about 2.5 hours to reach Uranus.

About an hour but if it was not in speed of light it would take about 7 Earth years and 16 days
