Meteor Airburst Over Russia

      Today a 7,000 ton meteor blew up over Russia injuring 1000 people. Russia claims to have hit the meteor with ABM defense, but that is unconfirmed and unlikely. Scott Lowther over at The Unwanted Blog ran the numbers and the equivalent nuclear weapon to this meteor would have had a yield of 271kT, about 13 times larger Hiroshima. See some dashcam videos of the event:
