The item concerned is something specific. A generalisation won't do.

I think there is more than 1 meteor in existence.

Karen - no, not a dinosaur egg or the Earth's core.

That looks more volcanic than meteoric to me, otherwise it's a photo of DrB's brain, taken while it had been removed for it's periodic check-up and cleaning.

Meteor & comet are the closest so far. But I reiterate - there is only 1 of these in existence.

No. It would have done some serious damage if it had.

No, I haven't fallen asleep.

You were pretty close in the end. It's Hyperion, 1 of Saturn's moons. I think it's amazing and there's no way I would ever have guessed that it's a moon. I thought it was a sponge when I first saw it.

The photo was taken by the Cassini space probe.

Or maybe it is because no one can get onto the forum?
