[size=6]Russian Scientists Find Crater in Meteorite-Hit Lake[/size

RIA Novosti said:

MOSCOW, March 21 (RIA Novosti) – A radar probe of the bottom of Chebarkul Lake in Russia’s Urals has revealed a crater possibly created by a fragment of a meteorite that exploded over the city of Chelyabinsk last month, a Russian scientist told RIA Novosti on Thursday.

The meteorite broke into approximately seven large fragments and one of them is believed to have fallen into Chebarkul, forming a hole in the ice about eight meters in diameter.
