Meteor explodes over Russia

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by oniman7, Feb 15, 2013.


  1. This is scary, amazing, terrifying, and beautiful all at the same time. A meteor exploded over Russia a few hours ago and was captured by many dash cams and handheld camcorders. It's said to have injured 250 people.

    You can hear the explosion at about 0:35 into this video: Here is the article where I found it. I do suggest watching some of the videos posted there.

    Oh my god that's insane! It sounded like an atom bomb went off followed by absolute pandemonium. Did NASA actually know this was going to happen? They're usually able to predict stuff like this pretty accurately.
     
  3. Only 304 views! I bet that escalates.

    My main questions are: how come al those Russians have a permanently running camera in their car? And second: Why do they keep on driving as if this happens twice a day? In some of those video's it looks as if it's coming right at them and they won't even flinch, they even keep watching the rearview mirror.
     
  5. With the 2012 DA14 asteroid about to have its close shave with Earth, the coincidence is incredible.

    I wonder if DA14 is travelling with a few friends?

    If that's Megatron, we're screwed. If it's Optimus Prime? Yay!

    I read that insurance fraud is a big problem in Russia, so a lot of people have dashboard cameras in their car. The sad thing is I just read this like half an hour ago and I can't find the website I read that on!!

    Either way, this is an amazing, yet terrifying event. And it's really mind blowing since I was just reading about the Tanguska Event only a couple of days ago.

    Damn.
    I too was just learning more about the Tanguska Event... I suppose when you have that much land mass it makes for quite a target.

  16. I have heard it has something to do with corrupt traffic laws and cops or something where having visual proof of things can protect them

    Russians seem to be a lot manlier than other nationalities.
