Meteor Stikes in Russia in Late Afternoon

Chelyabinsk got a bit of a rude awaking this morning as a 900 meter, 10 ton chuck of space gravel hit our atmosphere and streaked across the Russian city in the morning dawn. People woke up with glass shattering around in buildings, panes actually falling out their sills, car alarms going off for 40 mile radius. There are some 450+ people being treated for glass injuries. A Zinc Factory, now it rubble as the meteor plowed through the top of the factory.

The fact that this happened make me and I’m sure some others out there, just how close is this huge meteor is really going to pass by the earth soon? Will there be more? Were the mayan’s calculations off by a few months by forgetting to carry a number or misplaced a decimal? Time will tell but this was definitely a rude awaking for Mother Russia.

    My husband and i got relieved when Chris managed to carry out his reports while using the ideas he received out of your web page.

These illustrations you have made, the simple blog navigation, the friendships you will make it easier to engender – it is everything overwhelming, and it is facilitating our son and us recognize that this idea is fun, and that’s unbelievably fundamental. Thanks for all the pieces!
