Real Life Armageddon?! Ten-Ton Meteor EXPLODES Over Russia! Nearly 1,000 People Injured!

| Filed under: Leona LewisScary!Space!

And here we were, just finally getting comfortable and laughing about all of that 12-21-2012, Mayan apocalypse craziness!

Guess we're not out of the woods yet, folks!

Well, okay, we all know it's NOT the end of days, but this is certainly crazy and scary enough to at least get your head scratching!

What was projected to be a ten-ton meteor entered the Earth's atmosphere over the Ural Mountains in Russia early this morning, traveling past the speed of sound at 33,000 miles-per-hour before shattering into pieces 32 miles above the ground over the Chelyabinsk region…all of which resulted in a MASSIVE shockwave that blew out one million square feet of glass and left 985 people, 204 of them schoolchildren, injured!

Stranger yet?

This comes less than A DAY BEFORE an asteroid, identified as 2012DA14, is apparently going to miss hitting Earth by about 17,150 miles - the closest recorded pass EVER!

Local resident Serget Hametov explained:

"There was panic. People had no idea what was happening. We saw a big burst of light, then went outside to see what it was and we heard a really loud, thundering sound."

Luckily, most of the injuries reported are on par with another resident, Marat Lobkovsky, who described:

"I went to see what that flash in the sky was about. And then the window glass shattered, bouncing back on me. My beard was cut open, but not deep. They patched me up, it's OK now."

GEESH! Still, SO scary!

According to city officials, 3,000 buildings in the city are damaged, and with so many glass windows destroyed, residents are facing exposure to 15.8 degree weather!

Meanwhile, a 20-foot-wide crater has been located nearby, which military spokesman Yaroslavl Roshchupkin attributes as the final landing place of these fragments of space rock that have obviously caused SUCH a spot of bother!

But thankfully, it seems that the injuries here are incredibly minor, compared to the devastation that such an event could have wrought, and our thoughts go out to all of the people who were injured or negative affected by this all!

Everyone else, however, check out this INSANE video from the scene (above), recorded by someone who was kind enough to provide the PERFECT soundtrack to such a CRAZY cosmic event…AKA Leona Lewis' Bleeding Love!

    It did not explode. The noise is a sonic boom. It was burning up and small pieces will fall to the ground as meteorites. The windows breaking was from the sonic boom.

    "in a MASSIVE shockwave that blew out glass in a one million square feet radius " it is really sad that you cannot even COPY your stories correctly. The damage was done TO 1 million square feet of glass. It is completely wrong to state a radius as square anything. Square means AREA, not length. a circle with a radius of 189.4 miles would have an area of just short of 36,000 sq. miles this would be a circle based in indianapolis in that includes columbus oh, st louis mo, chicago il and the ky/tn border. Try reading and copying for comprehension once and a while.

    Re: NopeNopeNope – you are as stupid as PERV-ez. yes it did explode. At hypersonic speeds metalic objects will pancake and explode due to the unequal stress between the front and back sides of the mass. The kenetic energy involved it a 20000 lb artifact moving at interplanetary speeds is a number that is beyond the meager abilities of your mind to contemplate.

    How come the NASA didnt know about this meteor? How come they didnt say anything to warn anyone? What do they do all day over there? they are too busy looking at stupid rocks in Mars.

    We were incredibly lucky this time, but we're still not safe. There's so many asteroids and comets that we don't know about yet that may be in Earth's pathway. Hopefully this meteor will receive enough attention in order for science to develop a safe way to save Earth when the next heavenly body comes hurtling our way.

    Re: tutituti

    Nasa did know about this asteroid. It was said on the news that an asteroid would collide with earth in approximately 2012, but the next day the story was retracted and then the story was changed to the asteroid being a near miss. I don't remember what year I saw this reported on the news, but I do remember seeing it and the panic the news flash caused.
