In the wake of the Russia meteor strike so prominent in the news these days, a sort of scientific pilgrimage has affected the small village outside Chelyabinsk where fragments of the space projectile supposedly landed. A frozen lake in the Urals outside Chelyabinsk is thought to have been hit by one of the remnants of the meteorite. Reporting on the event, we also wanted to provide a mini-travel advisory for scientists or tourists headed to this part of the Urals.
Reminiscent of the movie Armageddon, meteors rained smaller destruction on the Chelyabinsk region of Russia this morning. Bizarre footage from would be citizen photo-journalists revealed fragments of space debris plummeting to Earth. Reports of some injuries and light damages have emerged as well.
