Canadian meteorite’s roof crash leads to research on space rock orbits and building strikes

Scientists are on the hunt for the origin story of a meteorite that smashed through the roof into a bedroom in Canada on Oct. 3.

The “fall” of a space rock attracted an unusual amount of media attention after ending up on a pillow next to the face of resident Ruth Hamilton, who had been sleeping in her Golden, British Columbia home for several hours before her dog heard a crash on the roof around 11:30 p.m. local time (2:30 a.m. EDT or 0630 GMT Oct. 4.)
