Having paid attention to the event, and reading the posting the following can be stated:
There are in short several different kinds of Asteroids out there that could hit the earth, and it is important to discuss the different types and
kinds as well as try to explain what happened based off of what we see of and not of the remaining:
The first thing to look at would be the compostion of the asteroid itself, that boils down to 3 types:
Type C: Carbonaceous, they are made of a log of silicate materials with alot of carbon compounds so they would appear very dark. They do nto reflct
alot of light, and are hard to see. Very unchanged since the dawn of time.
Type S: This is made of Silicated material, with very little in the way of the dark carbon compounds, and are alot brighter, easier to see and
Type M: These are made of metals like Iron and Nickle, tend to be the brightest of the asteroids, and along with being very dense.
While all of the asteroids tend to be of these three types, you should also add in that it also depends on if they are one solid piece or like a
There is another type of object and that would be the remains or a comet, where the majority of the material is made up of ice.
Based off of the reports, and the pictures a large meteor came crashing into the earth in Russia, due to the fact it was not seen, we could only
conclude it was made of Type C and due to that there is very little of it remaining, that it was more like a gravel pile. Chances are at that
velocity, if it hit the lake and water, it probably broke apart and the pieces are down there under the silt and muck.
Something like this has happed before, the 1908 Tungusga event, they did invesitgate, and only found the aftermath of what had happened, nothing else.
