Being hit in the hand by anything the size of pea traveling at 30,000 mph or not is not going to kill anyone lmao. Still, lucky son of a bitch, why cant I get hit by one.

ooo Physics time. Im a bit rusty.
The Meteorite is flying at 30,000 mph. So thats 44000 fps.
If by some miracle it actually weights the same as a pea.. according to google 1000 peas weigh 520 grams. So thats 0.52 grams.
So something that weights 0.52 grams travelling at 44000 fps is 2235.2 foot pounds of energy.
According to the House of Commons (http://www.parliament.the-stationery-office.com/pa/cm199900/cmselect/cmhaff/95/9504.htm) 1 foot pound of force can inflict a penetrating wound.
According to Wikipedia is roughly the same as a magnum .460
Smith and Wesson boasts that the .460 S&W is the highest velocity revolver cartridge in the world, firing bullets at 2330 ft/s. With Buffalo Bore's new loading, the .460 S&W can achieve nearly 2900ft·lbf of energy by driving a 360 grain bullet at 1900 ft/s. For comparison .500 S&W Magnum offers slightly more power driving a 350 grain bullet at 1975 ft/s for a total of 3031ft·lbf. The .460 S&W will destroy small game animals. This cartridge should be reserved for hunting medium to large game (such as a deer, elk, hog, or moose) unless the hunter does not care about keeping the game animals after the shot.
(tbh im not sure if a actual pea would splatter or not thinking back to Mythbusters. But we are talking about a Metorite that left a huge scar on tarmac here)
Before you ask it was do this or watch How clean is your house with the misses or the washing :rolleyes:
