400…er …. 700? ….a lot of people were injured when meteorites crashed to earth in what one science guy on the news called “an exploding fireball event” . The injuries were mostly due to broken glass and fallen debris from damaged buildings. At least three are listed in serious condition.
In this video, you can hear a very loud boom from the impact of the meteor.
This one,too…and I think I can hear the sonic boom?
According to some shaky news sources, there have been 3 impact sites identified and the Russian space agency Roskosmos has confirmed the object that crashed in the Chelyabinsk region is a meteorite:
“According to preliminary estimates, this space object is of non-technogenic origin and qualifies as a meteorite. It was moving at a low trajectory with a speed of about 30 km/s.”
Science People talking about this say this sort of event is extremely rare but hey…. building a bunker is never a bad idea, just in case.
