Gerrit Blank was walking to school two weeks ago when a pea-sized meteorite struck him in the hand. The 14-year-old German went flying, and the meteorite buried itself in the road. Gerrit was unhurt afterward, but the outer-space object did leave a scar on his hand.
Experts have confirmed that the small object is indeed from space. They estimate it was traveling 30,000 miles per hour when it hit Gerrit.
