LOMA LINDA, Calif. (AP) -- A 2-foot-long chunk of ice fell from the sky and tore through a college gymnasium roof, authorities said.
No one was in the Drayson Center at Loma Linda University when the slab of opaque ice hit on Thursday morning, although several people were outside.
LOMA LINDA, Calif. Somebody call Chicken Little, because the sky is falling in Loma Linda.
That same time rejoiced Jesus in the spirit, and said: I confess unto thee father: Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast opened them to the babes. Even so father, for so pleased it thee. All things are given me of my father. And no man knoweth who the son is, but the father: neither who the father is, save the son, and he to whom the son will show him.
The thermosphere starts just above the mesosphere and extends to 600 kilometers (372 miles) high. The temperatures go up as you increase in altitude due to the Sun's energy. Temperatures in this region can go as high as 1,727 degrees Celsius. Chemical reactions occur much faster here than on the surface of the Earth. This layer is known as the upper atmosphere.
One of the scientists, Victor Fulda, an environmental chemist in Maryland, found that the "ice bomb" contained peculiarly large quantities of silicon, strontium, and barium--all of which are not normally present in drinking water. "I'm willing to safely say that it's not water from an airplane," Fulda agreed.
The other sample went to Robert Seal, a geologist at the United States Geological Survey office in Reston, Virginia, who found that the ice was isotopically identical to atmospheric precipitation, strongly suggesting a terrestrial origin.
TOKYO - A disc-shaped piece of ice of unknown origin plummeted from the sky onto a golf course near Tokyo Wednesday, narrowly missing players on the fairway but causing no injuries, police said.
The fact is, no one knows for certain where this ice comes from or how it is formed. For now, it is just one more Earth mystery.
KOLKATA: A huge chunk of ice that apparently fell from the sky in a West Bengal village caused a flutter in the area even as weather experts dismissed such phenomenon as absurd.
