This article focuses on the infographic-design modifications made between Meteoroid, Meteors and Meteorites.
We also consider the previous design features and the new design.
Identifying the problem in the previous design
The blue & green arrows might look like the flow of motion, but they explain the different stages of the space object depending upon where it is.
It was unclear which atmosphere the meteoroid was entering, and burning up in, while on its journey to become a meteorite.
I redesigned the visual explanation; putting in an image for each of the three stages (Meteoroid, Meteors and Meteorites).
Above each stage, I explained the space object in light of its positioning.
Additionally, I slightly modified the text of the meteors’ explanations, adding the individual names of Earth’s atmospheric layers; e.g. the Mesosphere layer where the meteoroids become meteors.
Finally, I added the altitude layers (approximations) in order to reflect reality. Furthermore, I included a meteorite image over planet Earth with a magnifying glass effect, supporting the idea that the space object had reached the planet’s surface.
