"If the reports of ground damage can be verified, it might suggest an object whose original size was several meters in extent before entering the atmosphere, fragmenting and exploding due to the unequal pressure on the leading side vs the trailing side (it pancaked and exploded)," Yeomans told SPACE.com in an email. "It is far too early to provide estimates of the energy released or provide a reliable estimate of the original size." [Photos of Russia's Meteor Fireball Blast]
Does anyone know if one of Russia's missiles intercepted the meteorite and broke it into pieces before impact on earth?

I hope they did there math right the first time. As I feel what came down in Russia was some of the debris around the Meteor that was propelled from the force and speed of DA-14 coming around are bend of the galaxy.
I'm not a scientist i'm just thinking out loud~

Yea, about NASA, you would expect NASA would be making a statement or so?

Lots of pages so easy to miss but basically less than 10% of the Earth asteroid threat has been located. The other objects have simply been too small to spot, although there are all sorts of new satellites to send up in the not so distant future.
Basically, if it is an ELE type asteroid we will see it coming. If it is anything smaller then a good chance we may not.

Did Mr O pay homage to this thread yet? Once he does then--- all my suspicions come together automatically.

Yeah, I agree this may be one site where a part of the meteor hit, but it just doesn't hold water. If that thing could do as much damage as it did, blowing out windows, taking out buildings, injuring hundreds, there's a much larger crater somewhere. Afterall, the government isn't sending thousands to inspect a hole this size. There would be major damage around such a landing site - at least in my humble opinion, I would think so.

My bets are on it not being a meteorite.
Airspace accident, missile, something like that.
Homeslice www.abovetopsecret.com... yes, those look and sound like today's event (from descriptions I read elsewhere.)
By the way peeps, the Urals (where the object exploded) are in the western part of Russia and those 6.+ quakes today (still quaking there) are over on the Northeast area. The quakes have been going for almost a day now.
And yes, Da2014 is something else ... still 18 more hours before we get to watch it live events.slooh.com...edit on 14/2/2013 by Trexter Ziam because: (no reason given)
