Whenever you see a shooting star, what do you wish for?  Have you ever wished to find out what that ‘shooting star’ is composed of?


Actually, you wouldn’t have to wish for that, because there’s always Google and plenty of references you can turn to to make your wish come true.  It is unlikely that these entries from the world’s expert on astronomy and such will give you an answer like Chris Hadfield’s take on what might make up a beautiful shooting star.

Pop artist B.o.B’s song titled “Airplanes” refers airplanes as shooting stars, and although his take on shooting star is very meaningful, it’s nowhere as factual or humorous as an explanation from a real space expert.
