Watch this skydiver almost get hit by meteorite

By on

As if skydiving wasn’t a perilous enough experience, one man recently had to contend with something far more worrisome (and unlikely) while plummeting through the air: a meteorite. That’s exactly what happened during a recent jump by skydiver Anders Helstrup. Fortunately he walked away from the incident unscathed and lucky for us, he managed to catch the entire incident on film.

According to geologist Hans Amundsen from the Natural History Museum in Oslo, the odds of something like this are pretty astronomical (no pun intended). He said the chances of this happening are much less likely than winning the lottery three times in a row – or in other words, it’ll probably never happen again.
