Abstract: We propose a mathematical model fordetermining the probability of meteorite origin, impacting the earth. Ourmethod is based on axioms similar to both the complex networks and emergentgravity. As a consequence, we are able to derive a link between complexnetworks and Newton’s gravity law, and as a possible application of our modelwe discuss several aspects of the Bacubirito meteorite. In particular, weanalyze the possibility that the origin of this meteorite may be alpha Centaurisystem. Moreover, we find that in order for the Bacubirito meteorite to comefrom alpha Cen and be injected into our Solar System, its velocity must bereduced one order of magnitude of its ejected scape velocity from alpha Cen.There are several ways how this could happened, for example through collisionwith the Oort cloud objects (located outside the boundary of our Solar System),and or through collisions within the Solar meteorites belt (located betweenMars and Jupiter). We also argue that it may be interesting to studythe Bacubirito meteorite from the perspective of the recently discovered Oumuamuaobject.
