Kewl... so, we'd have been ok unless we got hit by a fragment, eh?
I forgot to check if you chose iron for the material, and I can't see your post while I'm replying.
No, I chose "dense rock," because I think that's actually a lot more common. Iron tends to leave fragments buried in the earth, and sometimes they're discovered. By which I mean to say that they're more rare. When I was a young kid (early '50s) someone in my neck of the woods followed a piece of iron meteorite to the ground and retrieved it and had a little "tent show" where you could take a peek at it for a nickel. Drew a pretty good crowd, too....
