Okay, so meteorites may not be made up of processors and RAM but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t cool in a technological sort of way. They land on Earth constantly but it is hard to get a sense of just how widespread meteorite impacts actually are. Well, it was.
A designer named Sebastian Sadowski has put together an interactive infographic showing 100 years of meteorite strikes around the world, which can show all of the strikes at once or separate them by country. If you were ever curious about when the last meteor hit South Africa (and where it was and what it was made out of), you’re about to have that curiosity satisfied.
