I thought about the cell phone thing and it could have been the towers were damaged by the booms.
It just shows that in an emergency like this, plan B has to be in force if the mobiles go down. it could be interfering with the waves and yes, when the towers were damaged.
Do we have a plan B? :cry:

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.

I think our plan B would be burning+looting, or it WOULD be if all the 'yoofs' could get in touch with other after the mobile networks went down.....

THANKYOU. So the professional who know more than us because they are in a position to know  - knew nothing.

No way was that meteor only 2 meters big..

Surely a rock only 2 meters large wouldn't do that ammount of damage..

force=mass x accelaration professor, so something weighing 10t, travelling at 10,000mph would have a kinetic force of 100,000t, and that'd REALLY hurt.....

Now that it has passed by its closest I will have to give our astronomers a big :tu: . Estimated closest 17,200....Actual closest it reached 17,200. Nice and accurate. +1 credibilty.

Looks like Asteroid DA14 2012 wasn't the closest fly-by this century then. Trust the Russians to up-stage NASA :P

It's mindboggling that they can know/track many of the objects they do know about from a rock that's spinning just over a thousnand miles an hour, that's flying around a star at 559,234 miles an hour, that's spinning around the glalaxy at 492,125 miles an hour.. (think I got that googled right)

And these things travel at thousands of miles an hour, with a liminocity so faint you need an apeture of several meters to get a decent view of where they are by staring at space..

The math/science is dizzying.. Facinating... But way to complicated for me and my micky mouse calculator.. :lol:

Oh dear. My mother was telling me about how cheap the gas was over there, during the freezing months people still had their windows open. There was an article about it in France.
Mobile phones stopped working too, which does not surprise me, I have always wonder the impact it would have on the satellite systems transmissions.

They probably had open windows because their apartment was too hot and they are not able to control the temperature. This is a legacy from Soviet times with hot water for heating coming from central boilers. You see on the photo a lot of steam coming from the district heating boilers all over Moscow. They are very noticable by their red and white stripped chimnies. Apartments at top of buildings can get overheated when heating is still on but outside temperature has risen due to fluctuations, particulary at onset of spring.
