    Large meteoroids are probably more common than telescopic surveys suggest, new analyses find.

    "That finding, reported online August 28 and in an upcoming Journal of Geophysical
    Research–Planets, comes from analyses of recently declassified data on infrasonic waves in
    the atmosphere detected between November 1960 and April 1972. The networkof instruments
    collecting the data was originally designed to detect low-frequency soundwaves produced
    by aboveground nuclear tests, says Elizabeth Silber, a planetary physicist at the
    University of Western Ontario in London, Canada".
