1. This is what happens when working conditions are unfair to meteors.

2. Freaking intense!

I showed it to several people at work today and the gape of their mouth was the common impulse.

3. "Radiation levels are OK"

begs the question of "OK" versus "OK by Chelyabinsk standards."

I knew last night as I staggered off to bed in the wee hours that I'd heard the name before. That's the part of Siberia where the worst nuclear incident in Russian history took place, noted by the west only by some increased atmospheric radiation followed by the complete disappearance of some seven towns in the region, simply vanished off the map by 1960.

It's a very timely reminder of what that region endured many years ago. The name belongs right up there with Fukushima and Chernobyl.

At least this one blew itself apart higher up than the Tunguska object did.

5. And THIS...


A hole in Chebarkul Lake made by meteorite fragments. A large, bright meteor blazed across the sky in Russia's Chelyabinsk region on February 15, 2013.
