Iron meteorites are also less likely to break up in the atmosphere than stony meteorites, leading meteorite expert Alan Rubin to suspect that the Chelyabinsk fireball is a chondrite. Chondrites are also the most common meteorite: More than 70 percent of all meteorite falls seen on Earth are chondrites, said Rubin, a geology professor at the University of California, Los Angeles.

A 10+ Ton Meteor landed in the lake?



What about the possibly 2 other reported impact sites??

imo it's a good thing it didn't land in the usa.I'm watching a mythbusters show and they were talking about a quarry near a town. They blasted a truck in the quarry and then the townsfolk started to complain about stuff falling off the shelves and eventually a newspaper claimed that "mythbusters" demolished the town. so if a lump of rock would have happened to fall, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if heaps of people started making huge absurd claims and heck, maybe even trying to find someone to sue, no offence guys but let's face it, you're now globally renown for wanting to sue the pants off anyone and everyone. flame on dear yanks, flame on

Not the average American, but there definately is that segment of society to be sure.....and someone would probably try and sue over an "Act of God"......I see no reason to flame you man, what you said is not entirely inaccurate.

Then there are people like you that blindly criticize without ANY knowledge whatsoever of the things others have researched.

Oh did I mention those that jump on false trail criticizing bandwagons, oh wait isn't that just bullying.

How about you mind your own posts, this post was replying to another poster.

Stop wasting my time and get back to watching mainstream tv news, there might just be whole load of truth out there they didn't bother to tell you, you wouldn't want a whole load of truths winging their way to you now would you?

Shine the light of logic on something that thrives on ignorance, and it reels in anger and scurries back to darkness.

You've been proven wrong on almost every thing you've put forward as possibilities, and your indignation is typical of what I think we've come to expect of this sort of religion.

The asteroid has gone. This meteorite was a separate event. There is no underlying cause that set them both to be near the earth.

No amount of crying about it is going to change these facts.

Did you consider the partial roof collapse was not directly caused by either the meteorite or the pressure wave?
Maybe one of the factory workers was driving a forklift and was startled so much from the exploding meteor he/she careered into a support column bringing down a section of the roof?

I am not flaming you I agree with you. Even stared your post.

This is a little off topic but I think it applies. Can anyone explain why an object such as the space shuttle gave off multiple sonic booms when re-entering it is one object so why two or three booms?

HAAAAAAA, ATS deny ignorance. Nice to see this thread about an anomalous space rock disintegrating in the Earths upper atmosphere has now degraded to the definition between stalagmite and stalactite, or is it tomato and tomato now, or meteor and asteroid, that's the ticket! Either way. Funny how the invention of the internet has only made people more ignorant and uneducated. Don't worry people, go back to your Happy Meals, people who are actually educated in the subject (we call them scientist) are looking at everything now and will publish their findings after peer review months from now in publications you have never even heard of, and cannot find at Walmart.



The Internet and forums such as this is also enlightening and educational. Big deal we're not all on the same page academically speaking. Just because YOU know something doesn't mean everyone else should too.

To cast dispersions on others who put themselves out in the line of fire to learn something, says a lot about your lack of character. It takes no talent to find fault in others. But it takes great skill to accept everyone.

People who spout off and turn their noses up at others really don't belong with others. So not sure what you're doing on a forum that luckily caters to everyone, everywhere.
Don't know about you but I've found we can learn the most from the most uneducated people walking this planet.. so perhaps a Mensa forum would better suit your upper crust ivory league needs?

Hey thanks for the video but I can’t say I trust FOX news to report on anything that involves science. She tried to say the hole tells how big it is which she isn’t accounting for the blast pressure.

I don't see what your point is.

Phage responded to a claim that numerous buildings were destroyed, by referring to the one partially damaged building. Which may have been a combination of excess weight at the point of failure, due to snow build up, collapsing when the shock wave hit.

Now you're bickering about what sort of roof can sustain partial damage as opposed to an entire roof collapsing.

Hey, well, my back room roof fell in, during one stormy night a few years ago. Part of it.

Guess the previous owner worked for the government or something to facillitate such a devious scheme.. or did I actually get hit by a guided space klinker...

hmm..

I hope I don't cause the closure of the thread, by replying to posts made 10 pages ago..

Yeah, it's common sense no? I have seen some tiny bullets make some pretty damn big holes in my day

Craters on the moon. I've asked the same. If the moon has no atmosphere or a small one, then the asteroid would still be in the crater. But it's not. No where to be found. Nothing to slow the asteroid. It makes me wonder.....




If a body such as the Moon...doesn't have an atmosphere, are these objects (asteroid turn meteor) not heated? Do they just coldly crash? And if so.....back to illuminatedobserver question; where are they then?

I realize some people know more than me obviously but let's face it.....we're all guessing at the end of the day. Because we REALLY don't know what's going on. We just 'know' from our prospective. And our prospective is extremely limited.

Once again I use the 500-year analogy and I can only imagine how antiquated and primitive we're going to look in the near future. We honestly know nothing.

I doubt it, it seems russians are not startled by such wimpy things judging by the video footage from the cars

I wouldn't be surprised if it had been intercepted, it would account for the anomalies.

Either way, it would be nice for the TRUTH.


What anomalies?

So nobody saw this 49 foot 7000 ton rock before it hit earth with all the equipment they have? Everyone was watching DA14 and nobody was looking around for others I suppose. The old man upstairs was using the same focus shifting wizardry that the government uses. I guess we had to learn if from somewhere.

the moon is moving thousands of miles an hour thru space as is the asteroid.
when they come in contact, like two cars in a head on, the damage from the combined speed may pulverise the asteroid and what, if anything, remains would be buried under the moons surface. so you may not see any sign of the asteroid on the surface of the. well except small debris.

also the moon is covered in a dust from all the impacts, hiding the smaller pieces that didn't get buried.

the asteroid is heated up on contact with the moon not through an atmosphere.
