"But i have noticed that nasa keeps
calling meteriods "meteorites" when referring to a cosmic collision from
cosmic debris upon the shuttle or ISS."

Hello Herman and list,

The official NASA term I believe is MMOD (micro meteoroid orbital debris).

I did a few Q & A's with different astronauts a few years back on such.
