Wow. That's crazy.



Wait, wasn't there a Romero zombie movie that involved a meteorite and radiation?

Yep - I didn't realize it caught the sound of the air blast when I first watched it so I had the sound pretty high and nearly had a heart attack myself; and it really spooked my poor cat..

I'm just really glad it was high enough in the atmosphere that no major structural damage (or worse) occurred; but I have heard there were reports of some deaths; so if true, that's a terrible situation regardless. But still, had there been a ground impact, things would probably have been WAY worse.

Yesterday? The larger one isn't due for another hour and 20 minutes: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-21442863

Its a good job that insurance scams, and corrupt traffic police are so prevalent in Russia. Otherwise we'd have no footage!

The meteor came from Klendathu.

Asteroids from Klendathu are a major threat, and can cause serious damage.

Would you like to know more?

We really need to work on serious deflection strategies. This one was a minor event; the next one might not be.
