Meteor Explodes Over Russia [VIDEO]
A meteor that exploded over injured over 900 people and damaged hundreds of buildings. Many of the injuries came from the glass that was blown out of buildings by the sonic blast as the meteor went by.
Don Yeomans, meteor expert for NASA, told Space.com,
“If the reports of ground damage can be verified, it might suggest an object whose original size was several meters in extent before entering the atmosphere, fragmenting and exploding due to the unequal pressure on the leading side vs the trailing side (it pancaked and exploded), It is far too early to provide estimates of the energy released or provide a reliable estimate of the original size.”
