it’s no surprise when the n.y. post prints shocking news, but reading this was a surprising shock for me:
The meteor — estimated to be about 10 tons — entered the Earth’s atmosphere at a hypersonic speed of at least 54,000 kph (33,000 mph) and shattered into pieces about 30-50 kilometers (18-32 miles) above the ground, the Russian Academy of Sciences said in a statement. story
oy vey! seriously, who could have known? the only thing more surprising was that the meteorite didn’t land on east 52nd street.
lets all take a moment to say a prayer for these people –
