Steve Spangler Science: Meteorite Hit My House

With a little searching and a super-strong, neodymium magnet, you can find meteorites outside right near your home.

When Hollywood features a meteor impact in a movie, it’s usually the end of life as we know it! Funny thing, though, your home has been bombarded by hundreds, maybe even thousands, of meteorites and you’ve survived it all these years. OK, meteorites like these are small… very small. In fact, they’re so small you might need a microscope to see them. All the same, your home was hit by them and you may be able to find some if you know the secret places to search.
