Safest US Cities from Meteors

In a quest to assuage any concerns related to the celestial menace of meteors, we delve into the insights brought forth by NASA's extensive meteorite dataset, which was unveiled in July 2023. By meticulously analyzing data from over 34,000 meteorites, we've painstakingly constructed a roster of what we believe to be the most secure cities in the United States, sheltered from meteoric hazards. It's important to note that predicting the precise impact location of a meteor remains an elusive endeavor, and any apparent patterns on the map are likely mere coincidences.

However, for those harboring worries about extraterrestrial rocks raining down, take solace in the rarity of these events—only a single recorded case exists throughout history.
