I'm no expert, but I do know that meteors do not explode. They can burn up with a lot of crackling if your close enough to hear, or they can crash. They do not explode, so this was not a meteor.

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.....

What about the possibly 2 other reported impact sites??
In all fairness, some say that the meteor fall was actually an UFO crash, so at least from this standpoint, Vladimir Zhirinovsky's conspiracy theory makes a tad more sense.

I wonder if the oil wells and pipes were damaged!? Russia is the largest oil exporter in the world. Guess the oil price Monday will tell.
Seriously, that would be scary.

Should I be comforted thinking we have a system in place, or pissed I'm being lied to, or uncomfortable knowing they don't know at which point upon entry to blow it up safely?
Theres no need to be mad or afraid. Its over. The once every hundred year rock has come. As far as we know, nobody died.
About shooting it down? Nothing but nothing comes into the atmosphere as fast as objects from space. Since science hadn't foreseen this one nobody had time to point let alone shoot any kind of interceptor at it. If they had it would have been tracked as a launch (or multiple launches) from somewhere. Which it wasn't.

For those that cannot see the merit of questioning things if they don't look right or don't fit general science, or suspect media of fakery, governments of lies etc, don't bother going on conspiracy sites. If you are here just for bullying then go be bullied right back but 10 times more.

More like 300 kilotons according to preliminary analysis from NASA
No wonder they mobilized 20.000 people. This could have been a real H-bomb, how could have they known so fast what it was?
