Skydiver Almost Killed By Meteorite? [VIDEO]

This video, filmed during the summer of 2012, has been all over the web since being uploaded a few days ago. What are the actual chances of being struck by a meteorite, falling from space? Probably on the same level as winning he lottery…three times in a row.

Anders Helstrup, a Norwegian skydiver, was out doing a jump with the Oslo Parachute Club, when he was almost struck by….something. The object can be seen falling to the Earth at around 18 seconds in.

Helstrup wanted answers, so he went to the experts.

 He was perplexed and contacted the Natural History Museum in Oslo for assistance. The experts confirmed his suspicion. “It can’t be anything else. The shape is typical of meteorites – a fresh fracture surface on one side, while the other side is rounded,” said geologist Hans Amundsen to NRK.no..

According to the article, the search is on to find the meteorite on the ground. However if this is all a hoax, it should be fairly hard to track down.
