WSJ: Meteor was 10,000 tons. Largest in last 100 years
We were some fucking lucky that bitch was not iron nor nickel or we would have had a real catastrophe.

The bulk of it burned in the atmosphere because it was stone. If it had been metal we would be talking about millions dead.

"The meteor that crashed to earth in Russia was about 55 feet in diameter, weighed around 10,000 tons and was made from a stony material, scientists said, making it the largest such object to hit the Earth in more than a century.

Large pieces of the meteor have yet to be found. However, a team from the Urals Federal University, which is based in Yekaterinburg, collected 53 fragments, the largest of which was 7 millimeters, according to Viktor Grokhovsky, a scientist at the university."

Guess they are not as good at detecting all of them as they though.

I dunno but if I knew some big sumbitch was doing a fly-by, I would be looking for spawn from it as they travel in packs.

LOL, yeah list a bunch of asteroids that miss, ignore the one that hits.

Don't think those idiots even know what that was that hit Russia. The MSM likes to trot out these scientists that pretend to know.

Re: WSJ: Meteor was 10,000 tons. Largest in last 100 years
The most intense part of the explosion was at about 20 miles high... and it still blew out windows. In addition, explosions that high have a poor conductivity through the atmosphere to the ground due to the low density of the atmosphere that high.

That should say something to the power of this meteor.

If it had been at a steeper angle into the atmosphere, it would have detonated lower and been possibly much worse.




I dont trust anything the MSM says.. for all I know it could've been iron or copper and a UFO saved the day.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18475264

The analysis of height, size, trajectory, composition, etc has been conducted by numerous professional scientists and amateurs around the world, not by the MSM.

Its good to be a questioning truth-seeker, but unintelligent/uninformed/misinformed paranoia and skepticism should not be a part of that. If youre gonna question things, then its your responisibility to go look for facts and determine which facts are correct or not.

Also, this is the largest *known* meteor event since Tunguska 1908. There could have been a larger one over the oceans or over a sparsely populated area where it was not reported in the past 100 years. jus sayin
