Russian Impact Crater Found in Frozen Lake By Fishermen

Russian Impact Crater Found in Frozen Lake By Fishermen

Can you imagine what it would be like to encounter such a thing as this crater?

Can you imagine what it is like to have every window in your whole region suddenly turned into a shower of broken glass, with the temperature at -15 degrees Celsius, as many thousands did?

Thus far, no deaths are known to have happened from this February 15 airburst, nor the 1908 Tunguska Event, the largest in recorded history. In that sense, the Russians lucked out. Twice.
