Hi Andrei. I found really interesting your article, I just would like to point out something I see as an error:

"When the asteroid entered Earth's atmosphere, its speed was automatically decreased by the gravitational force of our planet.".

What may have decreased the speed, generating heat, is the friction between the body and the air. The gravitational interaction would never create heat.

Thanks for the article.
