Chelyabinsk Meteorite is World’s Largest to be Recovered

At Lake Chebarkul in central Russia, divers have brought to the surface a fragment of the Chelyabinsk meteor that is the world’s largest meteorite to be recovered. On February 15 this year, a 55 foot, 10,000 ton meteor entered the airspace over central Russia.

Russian Meteorite Explosion Could Shame Spielberg

This video compilation of the Russian Meteorite explosion is brilliant. Pieced together from private footage and CCTV and traffic camera footage it give a great montage of the event.

It can be found on RT Question More  and it is almost stunning. Looking like a series of scenes from a science fiction film, it almost shames the past master’s of the genre.

It just goes to show that truth is not just stranger than fiction, but it looks more spectacular as well. Enjoy the clip.
