1000 Injured In Russian Meteor Strike

1000 people have now been reported injured, mostly by breaking glass from the shockwave of an early morning meteor that hit near Chelyabinsk Russia. Estimates of the meteor size is only 1 meter but this appears to be just the chunk that hit the lake.

“The meteor — estimated to be about 10 tons — entered the Earth’s atmosphere at a hypersonic speed of at least 54,000 kph (33,000 mph) and shattered into pieces about 30-50 kilometers (18-32 miles) above the ground, the Russian Academy of Sciences said in a statement.”
