    Apparently 4 people were injured by gasses, splitting off of the fall.

    Hitting a meteor with a missile seems like a rather difficult task. Also, the missile hit a meteor, not a meteorite. Technically, it isn't a meteorite until after it hits the ground (or water, etc.).

    To a degree. Kind of scary too if you think about it.

    Carl Sagan was the man (RIP). One of the more out-there theories about the event (and one I don't believe, but I'm amused by) is that it was caused by Nikola Tesla experimenting with some energy weapon.

    Russian scientists are saying that it's very likely a few more are going to enter the Earths atmosphere in the next few hours...

    Um not good...

    P.S: I know meteors are constantly hitting our atmosphere but I assume he's referring to ones making it through our atmosphere and actually causing some damage.
