Meteorite falls in Russia. (videos)

Recommended Posts



meteorites at the biggest are the size of sand. And they hit Earth all the time

This one was estimated at 10 tons.

They had pics on the news of a building with a giant hole in the side/top. Also videos of windows getting blown out and stuff from the sonic boom.

My wife is freaking out... she's terrified of meteorites.

That would scare the crap out of me, and then I'd whoop and drink a beer (or vodka in Russia).

That wasn't so much the boom as it was the fuging thing exploding from it's resistance from the atmosphere.

That report has a video of the building, but it says it wasn't actually struck but that the shock wave did the damage...
