Aliens, Death Rays And Sci-Fi Missile Shields Litter Russian Meteor Conspiracy Theories

The meteor that exploded over Russia Friday was actually one of the countryís satellites shot down by the U.S. in a fit of Cold War-era aggression, or so goes one of the various conspiracy theories surrounding the Earthís most recent and noteworthy encounter with an extraterrestrial object.

Despite broad scientific consensus, including among NASA and its Russian equivalent, Roscosmos, that the meteor was, in fact, a meteor and exploded under intense physical pressures after entering our planetís atmosphere at a speed of at least 33,000 mph, wild theories about what happened continue to circulate.

The simplest narrative is that the meteor was really a meteor but that the Russian government used an unbelievably advanced air defense system to shoot it down.

The fastest missiles in development are designed to travel at nearly 3,800 mph, already beyond the interceptive capabilities of current air defense systems.
