A marshmallow meteorite hurtling straight toward Earth?
How would this sweet space object begin its descent toward our planet? Would the rapid speed of 99.9% of the speed of light, which is 299,792 km/s (186, 282 mps), cause the marshmallow to disintegrate in mid-air?
What would happen if a marshmallow traveling at light speed actually made contact with Earth?
