Host: We are getting suggestions here at RT that the meteorite that came in just east of the Urals this morning was the preemptive part, the beginning nose part, of what could be a bigger chunk coming in in the next few hours. Do you know anything about that?

Piers Corbyn, Astrophysicist: Well… I don’t know. But of course you see these things generally have originated from something bigger which is breaking up or broken up even millions of years ago, so we don’t know. But I would say the likelihood of something more coming is greater now than say at any other time. It doesn’t mean it’s very likely, maybe only 1 percent chance of something big happening. But of course normally the chance of something big happening would be much less.

Host: We’re getting reports that if there is this chunk and apparently there is a chunk, it’s going to be passing by the next 5 or 6 hours (2:00p-3:00p ET) over the Pacific Region.
