Chelyabinsk skyfall

The meteor blast that terrified a Russian town & injured 100s

In mid-February 2013 a flaming meteorite, whose shock wave equaled 20 nuclear bombs, streaked across the sky and slammed into the central Russian city of Chelyabinsk. It damaged dozens of buildings and injured hundreds of people. We go to central Russia to talk with witnesses and scientists and to find out whether the country should get ready for more such terrifying events. 

What do you think?
