Incredible news out of Russia this morning. A meteorite exploded or impacted the ground near Chelyabinsk, Russia (just east of the Ural mountains). The pictures and videos are a testiment to the power of these types of events. Check them out at the Bad Astronomy blog or on Talking Points Memo. A few containing the awesomely loud sound of impact as well as show just how much broken glass resulted from such a powerful sound wave.
