Some fragments may have hit a lake near Chelyabinsk. Apparently, a few fragments have been recovered.
I’m surprised this isn’t bigger news than it is. Something like this happens only once in a lifetime. And this is certainly the first time I can recall of a meteor airbust causing such widespread injuries and structural damage.
There’s some discussion of this on the breaking thread.
1) The earlier in the day, the more TV is focused on women, and many women are much more interested in the cruise ship and the crime drama of a famous athlete killing his girlfriend than some weird science story
2) It’s in an obscure part of Russia with no foreign media
3) The media worked itself into a frenzy over the cruise ship and the payoff was today, and that’s where all the reporters are, and they are not going to tolerate being ignored for their live interviews
I imagine there are a lot of schoolchildren with bad cuts and blown-out eardrums; as horrible as it sounds the only way for this to get more attention would be for Oprah to interview some crying Russian kids.
To those capable of critical thought it is.
This event was historical given the fact it was another object which went totally undetected.
Compound this by the fact within approximately 20 hours later, a near miss from asteroid large enough to completely level the Dallas area with an impact so great it would rain down house sized debris 75 miles away..It just missed us.
Another reason why we here watch very little television. I can't bear watching the 30 year old CNN/FOX fashion models talking to the audience like they're all 7 year olds.
The MSM is sooooo thin - in quality and old fashioned brain power...
How can an asteroid compare to Rubio drinking a glass of water? On national TV of all things? THAT was NEWS.
Or black gang members killing people on Chicago's South Side? The Chicago story's news - NEWS - it's not like black gang members were killing each last week. Or last month. Or last year... or for the past 40 years...
I lived in Chicago's Hyde Park years ago - a girl was killed on my block by a black gang member... she was 15... I was two years older... I've shared that story with my grandkids - which might give you some idea how long this madness has been going on... and how lame the liberal solutions have been.
The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood,
Some fragments may have hit a lake near Chelyabinsk.
a tennis ball sized piece could have mad that hole.
The WAVE from the impact would chew up a LOT more ice and fling it outward, than the actual size of the fragment.
It IS; in RUSSIA!
Our 'pravda' has BIGGER fish to fry.
