18th February - Today's News: Fragments of Chebarkul Meteorite Found

Meteorite fragments found at Chebarkul Lake in Russian Urals - questions on how large and heavy it was remain.  Whilst probably more than the 10 tonnes initially estimated by the Russians, if it was a normal stony chondrite meteor it should have been somewhat less than the 10,000 tonnes suggested by NASA.
