What problem with earthbound telescopes does a space telescope overcome?

if you are looking at space from earth with a telescope your view will have to go through the earth atmosphere.... and for that the less brighter object in space will be blocked by the atmosphere... polutions etc.... but space telescope like hubbles... etc are situated in outer layer of our earth atmosphere..... thats why through it we can observe much clear space view....

When can a meteorite enter an alien galaxy?

Never. A "meteorite" is a space rock that fell through the Earth's atmosphere and became a "meteor", and survived the fall to the Earth. No meteorite from Earth will ever be taken to an "alien galaxy". Why would we? We'll find plenty of space rocks in space, where we don't have to use fuel to lift them back into space from the Earth's surface.

"Shooting stars" or meteors are bits of material falling through Earth's atmosphere; they are heated to incandescence by the friction of the air. The bright trails as they are coming through the Earth's atmosphere are termed meteors, and these chunks as they are hurtling through space are called meteoroids. Large pieces that do not vaporize completely and reach the surface of the Earth are termed meteoritesMeteors
