At 3:15 in

Reporter: We do know that at least 20,000 of the emergency personnel have been told to stay on high alert. I don’t think that order has recalled yet. I think they’re still on high alert because you have to understand as a matter of fact this could be a little teaser of what’s coming.

At 4:45 in

Reporter: If you look at the history of the area — here we’ve got video of the zinc factory that was hit and just blown out — I you could imagine waking up to this, if you look at the history of the area, this is essentially a giant nuclear facility. There are seven nuclear plants here that produce fuel.

Host: So it’s a danger zone.

Reporter: It’s a very big danger zone. During the soviet are it was basically a nuclear test site. Very heavily protected. So you could imagine that residents thought it was an attack or manmade disaster.

    Anyone know about the meteorite that struck Cuba after the Russian one? There seems to be quite a few or perhaps this was a fragment of the one that hit Russia? I don't know could be a rumor but there are some reports on the web.

      What Balistic Shield ??

      Russia and nobody/NATO on Earth saw that TEN TONNE asteroid approaching !!!

      What Balistic Shield ?? My Butt !

      Uhh , right , good it didn't land in the ocean to Tsunami a few dozen nuclear reactors placed on shores world-wide by our Adventuros 'scientists' … next time !

  • Does this look like a six-meter hole to you..!??? That's what media is claiming!

  • yes.. and were you the one who was throwing rocks at them ruskies..!?
    Chelyabinsk – Russian LibDem leader says it's new US weapon… we throwing rocks at them from space… good gods… that's all we need!

    Fruit is ripe!

      Let's see now… a hypersonic object dropping into the atmosphere from the North, i.e., over Canada and over the Arctic, landing somewhere near Russian nuclear facilities (or a zinc plant, I guess).

      If this would have happened twenty-five years ago, the Soviet counter-strike would have been reflexive. Central Europe and North America would both have been smoldering, radioactive ruins by now.

      See? Something positive for a change. We're incredibly lucky today.

    Do you remember what kind of a place is Chelyabinsk?:

    The Most Contaminated Spot on the Planet

    http://www.wentz.net/radiate/cheyla/index.htm

    If I was enough superstitious, I would say the sky is pointing with this fireball what people refuse to see to be their future:
    "Over the past 33 years, there has been a 21% increase in the incidences of cancer, 25% increase in birth defects and 50% of the population of child bearing age are sterile."
    Now I just hope more people will get interested in this place and learn about real health effects of radiation.

  • he Kyshtym disaster was a radiation contamination incident that occurred on 29 September 1957 at Mayak [Chelyabinsk-40], a nuclear fuel reprocessing plant in the Soviet Union. It measured as a Level 6 disaster on the International Nuclear Event Scale, making it the third most serious nuclear accident ever recorded (after the Chernobyl disaster, and Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, both Level 7 on the INES).

    AFP: The Chelyabinsk region is Russia’s industrial heartland, filled with smoke-chugging factories and other huge facilities that include a nuclear power plant and the massive Mayak atomic waste storage and treatment centre.[…] “All Rosatom enterprises located in the Urals region — including the Mayak complex — are working as normal,” an unnamed Rosatom spokesman told Interfax.

    Update from RT: “Officials did do preliminary testing of radiation levels in the area. They say that that is ok. But of course tests are going to continue throughout the day. […] Radiation levels are ok at the moment but of course we’ll have to bring you up to date as the developments come in.”

    The European Space Agency (ESA) said there was no link between the meteorite and the 2012 DA14 asteroid which is due to pass close by the Earth later on Friday. NASA also said there was no connection because the asteriod and the "Russian meteorite" are on "very different paths."
