A wealth of research has come following the Chelyabinsk meteor that exploded over Russia’s Ural Mountains on February 15, 2013. The latest study, which comes from scientists at the University of Tohoku in Japan, claims that the meteor collided with an asteroid before heading on its collision course with Earth.
Scientists studying the Chelyabinsk meteor that blazed a trail over Russia’s Ural Mountains on February 15, 2013 have been able to track the trajectory of the fireball using several weather satellites.

The Chelyabinsk meteor that blazed a trail across the morning sky in Russia this past February left a shocking impact on not just the Ural Mountains region, but the entire world.
A Russian scientist has reportedly found meteorite or asteroid fragments potentially linked to a mysterious explosion that took place over Siberia more than 100 years ago.
Initial reports put last Friday’s (Feb 15) Chebarkul meteorite that exploded over Russia’s Urals region at about 10 tons. But after careful analysis, NASA released new information that puts the meteorite closer to 10,000 tons—1,000 times larger than the estimates size reported by the Russian Academy of Sciences.
The first firm details of the 15 February asteroid impact in Russia, the largest in more than a century, are becoming clear.
As reports continue to stream in through various media outlets on injuries, damages, and the science behind such events, it seems this morning’s (February 15) meteor strike in Russia’s Ural Mountains region has left a pretty big impression far and wide.
A meteor streaked across Russia’s early morning skies on Friday before violently exploding, sending a rain of debris onto the Earth below. The flash and boom shattered windows and meteor particles left damage in its wake, injuring more than 900 people in the Ural Mountains region.
