Those things can be quite spectacular. Several of them have been spotted over Finland as well, but not by us. bored.gif None of them have exploded like that either.

It's due to global warming.

Quote:An estimated 20,000 emergency response workers have been mobilized. Background radiation levels reportedly remain unchanged – an important consideration in an area with a fair number of nuclear facilities.

Reports about whether this was one large meteorite or many smaller ones initially varied, but the national space agency, Roscosmos, confirmed by early afternoon that the object had been a single meteorite, a report given earlier by emergency officials.

“Verified information indicates that this was one meteorite which burned up as it approached Earth and disintegrated into smaller pieces,” deputy head of the Russian Emergencies Ministry press office, Elena Smirnykh said.

Roscosmos stated the meteorite had been moving at a speed of 30 km per second.

Officials are trying to determine where the fragments have landed.

So according to the Russians it wasn't shot down. I was wondering how they could possibly have had time to intercept something moving at that speed.

"I was wondering how they could possibly have had time to intercept something moving at that speed."
Very doable problem assuming your interceptor location is much closer to the landing zone than the incoming object (incoming speed doesn't matter much).

1. The US favorite was a variety of smart rocks known as brilliant pebbles (most pebbles are fairly stupid). These static kill vehicles would simply get in the way (when something is incoming at Mach 14+ you just have to get in the way).

2. The Asteroid Miners missed their target

It should be noted that the USSR has many territories, and neighboring countries similar to the target zone. The reason the USSR chose kazakhstan as their primary launch site was so that failed launches wouldn't harm anything important. The Russian miners (minors) may have simply missed.

I didn't hear that he made a reentry impact anywhere.

It also appears that the meteorite only hit Russian buildings, so it doesn't affect the US at all.

Time for those townspeople to go meteor hunting and clean up.

"The auction also offered another, no less unique lot: a piece of Seymchan meteorite, which was found in Siberia in the 1960s, Cursor reports. The fragment of the meteorite 23 centimeters in height, interspersed with chrysotile, was auctioned off for $43,750 - 12 times more expensive than the original cost."

Supply and demand...If theres hundreds or even thousands of fragments found from this russian meteorite,their value and selling price will go down and down some more,as more and more pieces are found and brought in...
