I guess it was lucky that it didn't kill any people, but I wonder if there might have been any microbes, bugs or viruses in this thing...
About as likely as there are in any of the other chunks of rock that impact the Earth every year.
but this one hit 06/06/2006 (US time)

If it was a meteor I am sure they would be warnings before.
I mean, what if it hit like a town or a village?
Or was it Really a meteor?
