Norwegian skydiver, Anders Helstrup, gave an unlikely boost to scientific research on meteors when he accidently filmed a falling meteor in 2012 from a very close range – so close, he risked death. It happened when Helstrup was skydiving, with his helmet-mounted camera filming his jump. Soon after he opened his parachute, something whizzed past him. It was so fast that he had to later recheck the video in slow-motion when he discovered that it was indeed a meteorite. Experts confirm it is the first time someone has filmed a falling meteorite.
