    I saw some video on a news site from someone who was close enough for the boom. It was impressive.
    Didnt read anything about it being 'intercepted' though.

    RT is possibly the last non-banker, Rothschild controlled media outlet on Earth. That will not last.

    Indeed, as chicken little said, the sky is falling. Imagine this small one hitting over Moscow or DC.

    Meteors are dangerous, and this one is a prime example of how injurious they are to civilized society.

    BAN METEORS!
















    Oh snap!

    No one has the technology to intercept an object moving at Mach 30+. It exploded on its own.

    Incredible videos. I would love to have seen video of Tunguska.

    The story is that the Russian military knew it was coming for days prior, yet the civilians were not notified.

    If the Russians knew it was coming, our government knew as well.
    And with about 12 hours difference in timing, this thing would have slammed into us instead.

    Once again goes to prove that if the big one (or small one) was one it's way, you'd never know it!

    I feel sorry for the people who lost their lives in this. That said, I think it would be AWESOME to die that way.
    We all have to go at some point. I would rather it be a rock from space that gets me instead of a boring death like old age or heart failure.

    The people who were hurt were hurt by mostly flying glass as the sonic boom or if you like shockwave broke millions of sq ft of glass and sent it flying.

    I haven't read about anyone killed or any interception.

    I voted for it and this is the real email response from the White House!

    This Is Not the Petition Response You're Looking For

    By Paul Shawcross, Chief of the Science and Space Branch at the White House Office of Management and Budget

    The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn't on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:

    The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We're working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.
    The Administration does not support blowing up planets.
    Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?
    However, look carefully (here's how) and you'll notice something already floating in the sky -- that's no Moon, it's a Space Station! Yes, we already have a giant, football field-sized International Space Station in orbit around the Earth that's helping us learn how humans can live and thrive in space for long durations. The Space Station has six astronauts -- American, Russian, and Canadian -- living in it right now, conducting research, learning how to live and work in space over long periods of time, routinely welcoming visiting spacecraft and repairing onboard garbage mashers, etc. We've also got two robot science labs -- one wielding a laser -- roving around Mars, looking at whether life ever existed on the Red Planet.

    Keep in mind, space is no longer just government-only. Private American companies, through NASA's Commercial Crew and Cargo Program Office (C3PO), are ferrying cargo -- and soon crew -- to space for NASA, and are pursuing human missions to the Moon this decade.

    Even though the United States doesn't have anything that can do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, we've got two spacecraft leaving the Solar System and we're building a probe that will fly to the exterior layers of the Sun. We are discovering hundreds of new planets in other star systems and building a much more powerful successor to the Hubble Space Telescope that will see back to the early days of the universe.

    We don't have a Death Star, but we do have floating robot assistants on the Space Station, a President who knows his way around a light saber and advanced (marshmallow) cannon, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which is supporting research on building Luke's arm, floating droids, and quadruped walkers.

    We are living in the future! Enjoy it. Or better yet, help build it by pursuing a career in a science, technology, engineering or math-related field. The President has held the first-ever White House science fairs and Astronomy Night on the South Lawn because he knows these domains are critical to our country's future, and to ensuring the United States continues leading the world in doing big things.

    If you do pursue a career in a science, technology, engineering or math-related field, the Force will be with us! Remember, the Death Star's power to destroy a planet, or even a whole star system, is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

    Tell us what you think about this response and We the People.
