It would seem that if indeed there was technology to shoot down a meteor with incredible destructive power they would us it and keep it secret. I don't know.. I think it's entirely in the realm Of possibility, although I'm not sure how they could get any kind of way for a weapon to catch it

I dunno, what do the video experts have to say about this one?

No. It blew up on its own. They usually do that while being in the earths astrosphere.

Av by me.

True, but If the footage is real it does look like something blew through it.

No reason to think this was a weapon, although the more credulous zealots will no doubt lap this up.

Remember this is not unique to the USSR, the Tunguska event in 1908 was bigger.

If they had a situation like this, Jim Oberg explained it best. All one needs do is put rockets on the thing and accelerate it. We know we can do that. Like 2 cars coming to an intersection, if one arrives early, no problem, if they arrive at the same time, bam. Just get the thing to pass by before earths orbit places the planet in danger.

I disagree, it looks like it broke up.

People are out collecting the fragments. And such a weapon would leave a trace of some kind, not a fusion crust as a meteor does, and I doubt the maker of any such fictional weapon would be too pleased about so many people having proof of this weapon.

Looks like a piece broke off.

It  looks like piece broke off but accelerated ahead of it, that's a bit strange considering the speeds . If you look closely it does look like something did come up behind it aswell at 0.47, but it would not be hard to fake I imagine. I think it's an interesting prospect.

Yes the video is very cool. I don't think a meteor breaking up has ever been filmed like that. It's awesome

It is the atmosphere in those clips. Areodynamics are bound to have some effect on the fragments. I think if one piece did move faster that such is quite plausible. Good catch if so.

One did hit Utah in 2009, quite spectacular and broke up in the air like the Russian one. It happened after Midnight so not many saw it:



Good commercial on Youtube, it is not real though, it is a car ad :w00t:

No. I "would not seem so", and this meteor was not shot down, but simply burned up in the atmosphere -- which is what meteors always do.

I'd very strongly suggest, on just a quick look, that the 'sparks' are in fact optical effects caused by a scratched lens/coverglass/window/windscreen.

I mean, *think* about it and look at the image.  Note the straight lines going up and down from the brightest portion?  The angled one going at about 45 degrees?  Are those 'real' - of course not, they are optical 'flares'.

The effects look exactly to me like what you get from a window with erratic microscratching - when you are driving at night in an old car with wiper-induced scratches or smearing, you will get the same effects - streaks that emanate outwards from a bright light source.

And yes, they can most definitely go forwards...  Depends on the angle/motion of camera/glass and the motion of the object.  And given all those videos of this, why was this the only one?  A magically super-sensitive lens and sensor?  Or shooting thru scratched/smeared media..  I'll go with Occam's razor..

We definitly have the tech to destroy a on coming meteor. We can hit a missle with a missle. I see no reason to believe that was the case here. Nor do I see a reason to denie it if they did hit it.

Some things are true, even if you dont believe them.

We did not even know it was coming, let alone have all missiles ready to shoot at it. All eyes were on the one which was not going to hit us.
I will now call Russia the Earths butt.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.
