    Link: Aftermath Of The Chelyabinsk Meteor - The meteor weighing 10,000 metric tons exploded only 23km above the city of Chelyabinsk in Russia on February 15, 2013.

    Liked how he combined the meteor event to climate change accuracy. That whole thing i veiled propaganda.

    Nifty!

    @tedgp: Science! :-) Ok, they guessed. But it`s an "educated guess" and probably pretty close.

    @tedgp: I would suppose, if you take the speed the meteor was going at, how intensely it was burning, how long it lasted, and how much and the chemical make up of the debris that was left over. One can approximate how much energy was given off by the meteorite entering our atmosphere. Using E=MC2 because light speed is constant and the energy is a known, you can work out the mass of the object.

    That is merely my guess, they may have seen it before it entered the atmosphere or did some sort of satellite scan. But you can tell the energy present within something by incinerating it and from there it is easy to calculate mass.

    Don`t pat yourselves on the back too much, NASA considering you didn`t even see it coming.

    drawman61 - what about EASA? Did they see it coming?

    Maybe NASA did see it coming, and just didn`t care because it`s on your side of the world.

    It`s just a theory, but I know how you love theory`s

    So basically it went `pop` then "pooffffff`?

    Some injuries some property damage, no deaths.

    @Draculya: I point out for everyone how lucky we got:
    This thing was HUGE! A real MONSTER!
    It blew up WAY WAY high in the atmosphere.
    It fell in a largely unpopulated area.

    If it had waited even 5-10 seconds before exploding? The damage would have made Nuclear Bombs look like firecrackers...

    Chelyabinsk Meteor Not a "meteorite"! Lolz! Excellent Wiki posting!

    Tunguska Event 1908 Boom baby!

    @tedgp:

    Look up any part of my words and see if they came from somewhere else on the web, they are totally mine. E=MC2 has been around for quite a while, if you don`t understand it thats not my problem.

    You asked a question and I gave you an answer, my answer, no google required. If it is so easy just to google it, do it yourself next time and spare us your comment. But don`t be a complete dickhead and accuse me of copy and pasting from google when I never did that and was simply trying to answer your question.
