    Another video taken by cell phone of an explosion caused by the meteor shower.

    Headlines Today, most probably erroneously, had initially reported that the meteorite had been shot down by a Russian Air Defence unit.

    Shades of Tunguska: Chelyabinsk crash recalls most powerful meteorite explosion in history


    “It looks like it was something like Tunguska – a 60-meter diameter cosmic body, which fell into the Tunguska taiga in 1908,” said Professor Oleg Malkov, Head of the Star Clusters Physics Department at the Russian Science Academy Institute of Astronomy, as cited by Komsomolskaya Pravda daily.

    Scientists have compared the recent Chelyabinsk meteorite incident to the century-old Tunguska event, a huge explosion allegedly caused by a fragment of a comet or meteor.


    According to estimates, the energy of the Tunguska blast may have been as high as 50 megatons of TNT, equal to a nuclear explosion. Some 80 million trees were leveled over a 2,000-square-kilometer area. The Tunguska blast remains one of the most mysterious events in history, prompting a wide array of hypotheses on its cause, including a black hole passing through Earth and the wreck of an alien spacecraft.

    It is believed that if the Tunguska event had happened four hours later, due to the rotation of the Earth it would have completely destroyed the city of Vyborg and significantly damaged St. Petersburg.

    The Tunguska event also prompted debate and research into preventing or mitigating asteroid impacts.


    [​IMG]
    Between Tunguska and Chelyabinsk, Russia has witnessed at least three such events. In 1922, a meteor shower rained down on the village of Tsaryov near Volgograd in Southern Russia. Some 1.6 tons of meteor fragments were found there, with the biggest weighing almost 300 kilograms.

    Siberia appears to be a real meteor magnet: In 1947, the Sikhote-Alin Mountains were hit by an iron meteor. An estimated 23 tons of extraterrestrial material were eventually found in the area. And just over a decade ago, another asteroid fell near the Siberian village of Vitim. The explosion of the Vitimsky meteorite was relatively weak, reaching only approximately 200 tons of TNT.

    As for smaller meteorites, hundreds of them strike the Earth’s surface every year, though only 10 to 20 are detected.

    “It’s impossible to trace them. We only know of big asteroids approaching. I mean space is swarming with little stones – it’s no revelation, it’s a fact we have to come to terms with. The earth is hit by relatively little space objects every hour,” said Kosmopoisk (‘Cosmosearch’) NGO head Vadim Chernobrov, Kommersant daily reported.

    Such meteorites usually reach the surface Earth burned down by the atmosphere and too small to cause damage. According to statistics, only 1 in 100,000 asteroids is potentially destructive.

    The oldest discovered meteor was 4.6 billion years old. The largest, the Hoba meteorite in Namibia, weighs over 60 tons. The largest-ever accumulation of meteors was found in the Antarctic in 1979.

    Finding a fragment of freshly-fallen meteorite takes a great deal of luck – considering that 97 percent of space rocks found on Earth have fallen long ago. At the same time, being injured by a falling meteorite is an even rarer event: According to NASA, there is a "1 in 3,200 chance of anyone being hit."

    @SajeevJino, what do you think? First Pope resigns, then an Asteroid is seen over the sky, all this in the backdrop of Israeli war preparation on Lebanon. Do you think it's really here? ww3?

    RT also initially reported that it was shot down. But yeah, it's probably incorrect.

    Hmm. Furthermore, it's sort of implausible. The meteorite was moving at 30kmps. Don't think ABMs move that fast.

    After 0000 hours on the 16th I was listening to AM broadcast radio in the Eastern US. You would not believe the hysteria.

    and so on Australian PM Julia was also addicted to Mayan Prophecy and tells his peoples to worlds ends on Dec21,2012 ..But in my view is simple if Mayans are correct our English Calender willl be wrong by some days


    And Tonight Master show ..I think that will cause our Satellites and Communication devices ..But we need to wait till Mid Night


    Let me weight midnight I will Tells you Balance News

    Yeah, 30kmps, that's like Mach 90. Of course to intercept the meteor one needs to primarily just predict the path. But it becomes very difficult when such gigantic kinetic energy values are involved.

    @SajeevJino , Vladimir Zhirinovsky is the founder and leader of the so called Liberal Democratic Party of Russia which is neither liberal nor democratic. Also he is slightly mental.

    Well, half-serious, yes. It is just around the corner. Just look at the state the world is at. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to predict that a matchstick is all that is needed to ignite the world.
    Have you ever heard of WW3 conspiracy in any case? Not all of it is hoax, there is a pattern, one would have to admit.
