Skydiving Rocks!

The last thing you’d expect to happen to you when you’re skydiving is to have a rock go shooting by you, but that’s what happened to a guy in Norway. The video is everywhere…He documented the jump with two cameras fixed to the front and back of his helmet and says that on the way down he felt ‘something’ happen, but didn’t know what it was until he went back and looked at the video and saw it was a meteorite. Scientists say it was in ‘dark flight’, which means it had already done it’s burning on the way through the atmosphere so it was no longer glowing but it still shot by him at about 186 mph. At least it was nice enough to pass him on the left.

Brent Lee

QMIX Afternoon Guy, Brent Lee, grew up near Greensburg -- where he started working on the radio at age 14. Growing up as an only child may have been lonely at times, but it led him to be the creative, fun guy we all enjoy on the radio! Brent graduated from North Decatur High School and Ball State University. His first summer during college, Brent actually filled-in as the QMIX Afternoon Guy all summer, when there was a full-time opening on our staff. Little did he know he would return to that job many years later. Brent has worked in radio all over Indiana (and a bit in Illinois too), claiming to never have had a real job. And he’s has been back at QMIX since 2011. We hope he’ll be here for a long time to come! Some of Brent’s favorite things are IndyCar, movies and good food!
