    I came across this site when I was researching an actual story (in a very old newspaper that I found in my house) about an elderly but healthy woman that went to bed...was sound asleep...& never woke up.
    The next morning a family member discovered her croaked & thought she had been murdered in her sleep ~ called the family doctor who spotted a hole in the roof & could look down through a hole in her chest ~ through the mattress ~ the floor ~ the first floor floor & all the way down into the basement. The meteorite was found buried a full two feet into the basement dirt floor.
    Struck by a meteorite...in bed.
    Sweet Dreams Folks!

    Good grief! I think we would be safe in saying that the poor woman's time had simply come. I'm not squeamish but that's a pretty gnarly mental picture that conjures up....

    Meamwhile......

    That particular newspaper story (from Spring~1909 I think) that I found is not listed on the site...I'm going to hafta dig it out & scan him a copy & E-mail it to him so that he can add it to his "meteorite strike" list.

    Now I have something to show my friends who thought I was crazy building a concrete and steel bunker for a house.

    You just never know when it will happen, do you?

    Can we hunker down in your bunker?

    The 12 gauge by the bed won't help you much either.
    Not a very good defense against chunks of rock/iron hurled from the sky.

    I'm not sure it would help. I didn't calculate the energy of a metorite, so it may not stop those.

    I did get the optional foil lining, inside and out.

    Now I have to research speed and mass for my next house. Since I'm moving maybe I just need to tunnel into a mountain. Is NORAD for sale?
