Hello Ron;

Thanks for the post,i always enjoy them.But i have noticed that nasa keeps
calling meteriods "meteorites" when referring to a cosmic collision from
cosmic debris upon the shuttle or ISS.If i didn't know better i would think a
meteroid enters out atmosphere to become a meteor and strike the earth to become
a meteorite and then bounce back out and strike the shuttle or ISS to cause
damage.( just kidding there ron ).My question is;Doesn't nasa P.R. folks know
the difference?Just keep seeing it printed that way and was curious.

Thanks for all the effort you put into your very informative posts.

Best Regards;Herman Archer IMCA # 2770
