Asteroids bombard our atmosphere all the time. Some are harmless, burning up completely in a flash of light, or breaking into bits of rock that scatter on the earth. But others explode in the sky with a great sonic boom, smashing windows and throwing people to the ground. Worst of all, some asteroids strike our planet head-on, blasting out massive craters and destroying everything nearby on impact.
