About the Chelyabinsk Event
On February 15, 2013, an approximately 20m near-Earth asteroid entered Earth’s atmosphere over Russia.
With a speed of approximately 60,000 km/h, it quickly became a brilliant superbolide meteor.
The explosion released approximately 30 times as much as energy as that released from the nuclear bomb over Hiroshima.
The blast created by the meteor’s air bust produced extensive ground damage.
Around 1,500 people were injured and over 7,200 buildings were damaged.
With a total mass of 654 Kg, the largest found fragment of the meteorite was raised from the bottom of the Chebarkul Lake.
The Chelyabinsk meteor is thought to be the biggest natural space object to enter Earth’s atmosphere since the 1908 Tunguska event.
