MOSCOW, February 15 (Itar-Tass) – According to the Russian Academy of Sciences, the meteorite that fell in Russia’s Chelyabinsk region in the Urals on Friday measured several meters, weighed about ten tons and had the power of several kilotons, the press service of the Russian Academy of Sciences reports.
The meteorite “entered the atmosphere at the speed of 15 to 20 kilometers per second and disintegrated at the altitude of about 30 to 50 kilometers,” it said. Fragments moving at a great speed caused a powerful glow and a strong shock wave. The bulk of the falling substance evaporated (burned down), the remaining fragments slowed down and could fall to earth as meteorites,” the press service said.
