I think you mean "extinct" and how do you conclude this exactly?

What does this all mean?..........Dinosaurs did not become instinct by an asteroid.

For the last time. It was not a sonic boom.

It was the shock wave of the meteorite exploding that caused the damage. That was the loud boom. The little booms afterward, were the sounds of further pieces breaking up, and of echoes.

"It was Nyan Cat."

That bears repeating.

I think this is referred to as a "bolide". I saw one about 20 years ago over Huntington,Pa. that looked just like the Martian rocket canisters in the 1952 version of "War of the Worlds". A large bright blue/white center and appeared to move quite slowly compared to a regular meteor. The flaming debris trail is visible w/o a telescope. Pretty spectacular.

Another info this space object are called Asteroids when they are out in the space,when they cross the atmosphere they are called Meteors,the pieces of it that eventualy "survive" and arrive to the ground are called meteorites.

Fu*k me. Thanks for that "infographic" you jobless sack of dicks. I wouldn't have known it had happened because I never watch the news.

They assume the asteroid exploded in 9 major pieces earing the sonic boom i presume. In fact there was one major boom followed by some other minor.

Corydoras87 i see, this is if we assume that he was a totaly dense block ,if we introduce porosity the volume could be much more. I am not an expert btw, some scientist say that this asteroid was like 10 meter of diameter and when he impact the atmosphere he exploded in someting like 9 major pieces. Anyway untill they don't find some piece of it they can't clearly say how much porosity he had. They allready have found one of the point of impact with the ground in a frozen lake. We will know something more in the next days. Anyway ty for your info.

(sorry, in my previous response I wrote grams per cubic meter, but it has to be grams per cubic centimeter)

on another note, if it was 10 meter diameter, so a sphere with a radius of 5 meters, this would equal to a volume of 524 m3...

this means that if you want a sphere of that size to weigh 10 tons, you would need a material that has a density of 0.019 g/cm³, which is pretty low, probably a gas

piperfawn, lets say it was a sphere to make things easier, with a radius of 1 meter (diameter of 2 meter).
this equals to a volume of around 4.2 m3.
Now the density of asteroids varies significantly between 1.7 and around 5 grams per m³. lets use the lower end of the scale, 2 g/m², leaving much room that it could weigh more.

This equals in a mass of 8400 kg for a 2 meter diameter spherical asteroid, pretty close to 10 tonnes if you ask me and as I said, it could weigh much more
