The Russia Meteor

Chelyabinsk? It's Tunguska all over again, I tellz ya.

People have been doing wild Tunguska theories ever since it happened - it as a micro black hole; it was a chunk of neutronium; it was a speck of antimatter. I don't think that will happen this time, but it is interesting to consider that the Soviet government sited the Cosmodrome - their version of NASA - in Central Asia specifically because huge chunks of rockets and missile could rain down there as "meteors" in case there was an accident.

So maybe those Russian Soyuz rockets are now getting as scary as our shuttles did, right before the end...
