“We saw straight away that the event would be huge, in the same order as the Sulawesi event from 2009.
nfrasonic waves from the meteor that broke up over Russia’s Ural mountains last week were the largest ever recorded by the CTBTO’s International Monitoring System. Infrasound is low frequency sound with a range of less than 10 Hz. The blast was detected by 17 infrasound stations in the CTBTO’s network, which tracks atomic blasts across the planet. The furthest station to record the sub-audible sound was 15,000km away in Antarctica.
Yes. That is what the article is about.
then they do have some equipment that tracks it right?

Maybe I phrased it wrong I mean is there a system that tracks meteors outside our atmosphere , and does this system works as such?
Because this technology looks like some large audioscope that uses combined strength to pinpoint blasts all over the world... ?

It will be interesting when the data comes in from "ear" witnesses how far away the sound was heard. Up till now the loudest sound came from Krakatoa Volcano. Its booming sounds were heard over four hours later...
