    Almost. In space they're meteoroids. When they hit the atmosphere they change name: meteors (shooting stars) burn up and meteorites make it to the ground (apart from whatever portion burned off in transit).

    If the Pawnee earthquakes due to fracking destabilize the new Madrid fault and it pops, we could be looking at the largest national disaster ever. Pawnee is only 480 miles away from New Madrid. The 1811/12 quakes back then were huge. The Mississippi reversed direction. What will happen if they reoccur?

    The first principal earthquake, M7.5, occurred at about 2:15 am (local time) in northeast Arkansas on December 16, 1811. The second principal shock, M7.3, occurred in Missouri on January 23, 1812, and the third, M7.5, on February 7, 1812, along the Reelfoot fault in Missouri and Tennessee.Oct 31, 2012
    In a report filed in November 2008, the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency warned that a serious earthquake in the New Madrid Seismic Zone could result in "the highest economic losses due to a natural disaster in the United States," further predicting "widespread and catastrophic" damage across Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, and particularly Tennessee, where a 7.7 magnitude quake or greater would cause damage to tens of thousands of structures affecting water distribution, transportation systems, and other vital infrastructure.[11]


    This story is a good compelling read - and hypotheses what would happen if a similar earthquake were to happen today

    The Rift is a novel by author Walter Jon Williams. Published in 1999, it is a 726-page (hardbound) epic concerning the effects of a massive earthquake in Missouri, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Largely using the 1811-12[1] New Madrid earthquake as a base, he depicts the breakdown of infrastructure that would result if an earthquake of equal magnitude were to occur today.

    The title of the novel is a double-entendre. It is a reference to the theory that the New Madrid quake was the result of a failed rifting of North America, but also to the deep racial and social divides that are portrayed throughout the story
