Can a shooting star hit the ground?
When meteoroids enter Earth's atmosphere (or that of another planet, like Mars) at high speed and burn up, the fireballs or "shooting stars" are called meteors. When a meteoroid survives a trip through the atmosphere and hits the ground, it's called a meteorite.
People also ask can you touch the moon with a bare hand?
Based on measurements of the lunar soil and NASA guidelines on skin contact with hot objects, you would probably be able to press a bare hand against the hottest lunar soil without feeling uncomfortably warm. But if your hand hit a rock, you might find yourself yanking it back in pain. In respect to this, is it illegal to own a moon rock? Possessing and selling moon rocks is illegal in most circumstances, as lunar material is the property of the U.S. government. A NASA agent arraigned a sting, agreeing to buy the items from Davis, which Davis had said she wanted to do legally. When the two met at Denny's Davis found herself surrounded and detained.
You can also ask why is space black?

There is no wind there, no clouds, no rain, no snow and no storms, but there is "day and night" and there are extreme differences in temperatures depending on where the sun is shining.
Also, how cold is space?
Hot things move quickly, cold things very slowly. If atoms come to a complete stop, they are at absolute zero. Space is just above that, at an average temperature of 2.7 Kelvin (about minus 455 degrees Fahrenheit).

If everything has a creator, who created God? It's improper to lump God with the creation of things. The Bible shows that God has always existed. There is no reason to think that the universe was created.
