A meteorite is another term given to those fragments and debris of space that strikes planets or their moons. This phenomenon is very common and can prove to be disastrous if a meteorite huge in size strikes earth. This disaster is caused by the size of the meteorite and its collision as well as the explosion that occurs upon collision. This explosion of meteorites is due to their getting heated up on account of friction with our atmosphere. Consequences of meteorites can be quite devastating and result in extinction as well as climate change.
