New simulations suggest meteors explode from the inside

Quote

NEW ORLEANS — Researchers have identified an explosive new mechanism that breaks down meteors as they hurtle toward Earth.

New simulations of falling meteors suggest air particles penetrate the space rocks’ porous interiors as they careen through the atmosphere. These air particles create pockets of high pressure that ultimately lead the rock to explode from the inside, tens of kilometers above the Earth.
