Of all places for this to have occurred,............Chelyabinsk? Stalin's nuclear playground?

They're saying on the news that over 400 people were hurt, and windows were blown out of buildings. What's next? An impact in a major city by a space rock the size of the one passing close to earth now--within the geostationary orbit where we have 600 satellites as sitting ducks? It's not really likely one will be hit, but this is the closest encounter we have had yet that we knew about. If someone's cell phone service goes out, or some cable channel goes off the air, the reason may be some comsat got zapped. There is a question whether the meteoroid that struck in Russia was a piece from the bigger one passing by earth now. Seems like quite a coincidence.

Yes. The Muslim Outreach Agency claims this is not connected to DA14....and I have a Brooklyn bridge to sell you too... S13

No Ron, this is NOT the closest encounter we have had yet. It is the closest one you apparently know about. Big difference there.

We are bombarded by these things continually. I remember Time magazine talking about South Africa conducting oceanic nuclear atmospheric tests, in the late 70s, early 80. But they weren't: they were atmospheric explosions caused by the very same thing.

This happens all the time Ron. The only difference now is that we have smart phones that people can record, and they can do this all over the world.

Get used to it. Imagine what a fifty metre, or a one hundred metre, object will do if it hits an urban area.

This is why I have been preaching the dangers of Impactors, for years now. We are constantly in danger of mass extinction. What part about this don't people finally understand?

Pardon my French, but Screw Global Warming. Worry about Impactors and their danger to the human species.

Do I need to preach this more often before more people actually Get It?

It may well be.

Almost all asteroids, meteors, etc, started out as a comet, which later broke up. And the broken up parts tend to travel in the same direction, as a group. The planet goes through cometary debris, from several former comets, on an annual basis.

This is why so many people have things backwards. Everyone talks about asteroids, and they conveniently forget comets. Comets are the grandaddy to asteroids. They are usually traveling at twice the speed, and have far more mass, think kinetic energy, than asteroids.

Concur. And it not necessarily related to comets: it can be also a capture or decomposition due to either impact or thermal-induced changes. In all cases we get multiple objects sharing the orbit.

I was watching about this astronomical phenomenon on the news, and while they say it shattered, how cool would it have been if it blew up because the Russians shot it down with missiles?

As usual, the news media(in this case the WSJ) get it wrong,........again.

Quote:The last major asteroid impact on Earth was on June 30, 1908, when one about the size of an office building (140 feet across) slammed into Siberia with a destructive energy 700 times that of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. That asteroid devastated a region roughly the size of the San Francisco Bay area. Asteroid 2012 DA14, which will be passing over our heads on Friday, is about the same size as the asteroid that devastated Siberia’s Tunguska region. . . .

Tunguska was definitely Not an impact. It was an air burst, just like the one today over Russia. The speed, atmospheric resistence, and angle of trajectory resulted in just the right pressure to cause an atmospheric explosion. And the fact that it was over a city has finally proven to be a g-dsend, because now such events are not only reported, but are documented on for everyone to see, and judge.

Like the multiple impacts of Shoemaker-Levy 9 on to the surface of Jupiter, this event will most likely act to add awareness to the real danger we face, instead of all this hokus-pokus Global Warming claptrap. Thank G-d for technology in this case. We now have real life documentation of what we can expect the next time we really get hit by an even larger Impactor.

Arrgh, you are expecting too much....and in these cases impact may be still the correct word -- the atmosphere was impacted!

For a better instance of "scientific reporting", here is a quote from --- actually interesting --- article in LA Times yesterday

Quote:and helped people absorb more vitamin D from the sun as they moved to northern latitudes.

WTH? A Vitamin-D radiation from the Sun.....perhaps this is deserving of a Nobel S13

===

Question: what is the connecting between this and Putin or Obama? Is there an assumption that exploding this thing over Russia was the manly thing to do and Obama failed yet again? S6

Yeah, I've been contemplating splitting it off from Putin thread.

What is most interesting is the time it takes for the sound waves to reach the onlookers, who are totally shocked by the tremendous noise/pressure-wave. Just listening to all the glass shattering is a revelation too. This will not be forgotten by the residents of Chelyabinsk for a long time. They will have no trouble appreciating the dangers of Impactors. S1

And to think, this was but a tiny companion to the main one that just missed us.

I don't believe it either.

It's a bit strange that the meteor's remains are not found yet. Probably they were evaporated in the air after the blast. The orange color of the trail cloud can be seen very well.

I thought one of the remnants was located in a lake, where it crashed through the ice.

And remember, none of the remains from the Tunguska explosion were ever found either. An air burst, resulting from so much heat, and kinetic energy, almost certainly caused the object to be totally destroyed.

Quote:Police have collected several small pieces of a black rock-like substance believed to be remnants of the meteor, Interfax reported.

http://www.latimes.com/news/world/worldn...3856.story

With Tunguska the first search was done 20 years after the event...too late... the alien rocks may still be there, covered by plants/moss...

Add this to the sloppy journalism reporting:
Quote:He said that 30% of about 100 square meters of broken windows had already been replaced.
100 sq meters only?
