Tweet shower on twitter after meteor blaze!

 People in Chelyabinsk, the area hardest hit by means of the meteorite that slammed Russia Friday morning, have a tricky-guy recognition, pumped up in recent years by means of a popular TV skit show. Twitter feeds within the hours following landfall saved up the picture, however admitted some weaknesses too.

“Everyone cleared out from our place of business except for one dude. Asked why, he stated, I Would Like me some espresso first,” Twitter person @ma1ice_ma1ice wrote an hour after the celestial body streaked the sky over the region’s eponymous capital, Chelyabinsk, a city of 1.1 million within the southern Ural Mountains.



Such tales jostled for online space with messages full of phrases like “concern”, “panic” and “scared sh*tless”, in addition to a lot of other expletives, which also abounded in most eyewitness movies posted on YouTube.

“Blinding flash of sunshine, then a blast like we’re being bombed. Lord, surviving this is unreal. I Assumed a warfare’d begun,” wrote person @DANISHPRINCIPLE.

No deaths had been reported attributable to the meteorite, however police mentioned by way of early evening that just about 1,000 People had been damage, the majority of them injured via glass shattered by way of the shock wave.

“Sure, I’m dwelling, shaking in every single place. Horrible panic here, Everybody’s leaving town,” wrote @DashkaBulanova.

The panic, on the other hand, was once far from universal: “I was once asleep, heard the blast and went back to sleep,” tweeted @Nastyayas.

“That Is some original take-heed call proper there, when your door gets blown away by the blast wave,” wrote the less fortunate user @R_T_S_.

Some took it better than others. “We were dancing, unexpectedly a flash of light and a horrible blast, we run up on stage in a panic, and the instructor’s all calm: ‘Don’t Worry, it’s only a meteorite’,” said @caxapoook.

The People of Chelyabinsk, an industrial metropolis plagued by dismal environmental pollution and high crime rates, changed into Russia’s new token tough guys after a television skit exhibit known as “Our Russia” went viral in the mid-2000s: It extolled their a lot of fantastic virtues and over-the-prime skills, no longer in contrast to the united states-born “Chuck Norris info” phenomenon, praising the hyper-tough action hero.

The meteorite additionally spawned a dozen Russian-language Twitter money owed of its own, all providing more lowbrow humor, with traces like, “Looking to meet earthlings. No Bruce Willises” – a reference to the Hollywood celebrity’s campaign against house particles in “Armageddon”.

    A few days ago, a meteorite came down from the sky and exploded in Russia and injured 1200 people. What was interesting was that no one actually saw this meteorite coming. In contrast, people were observing another one that went by earth peacefully. In fact, so sudden and so unexpected was this meteorite that many people had initially thought it was the other meteorite that went past the earth.

    Why is it no one saw this meteorite coming? I find it hard to believe with all of today’s high tech available, people could have given this meteorite a miss.

    Were telescopes pointing the wrong way?

    Hundreds were injured and at least one building’s roof was collapsed by large meteors that no one saw coming, apparently. The place in Chelyabinsk that was affected was a low population are

    Chelyabinsk could have easily be the US Capital or your neighbor hood. People could have been killed. The meteors could have been small asteroids and could have taken out and entire neighborhood or city. We could have had a major impact event an life as we know it would have taken a turn for the worst.

    There won’t be any hungry children to feed if a rock only a mile or two in diameter strikes us because we thought ‘stargazing’ was a misplaced priority and put away our radars and telescopes. 🙂 People think space related programs are junk. Space weather is just as relevant as Earth weather.

    That’s why a little more investment should pay off. We apparently can automatically detect many of these NEOs. If we keep working on these programs, the volume of NEO becomes unimportant as the software becomes more reliable and faster.

    when i was around 4 my parents told me i was adopted from Chelyabinsk Russia when i was about a year old. I was put immediately into an orphanage and i know nothing about my real parents because my adoptive parents told me when the orphanage tried to contact them it was all fake names and numbers on the papers. i’m 16 now (my adoptive mom died a few years ago and my dad isn’t very interactive with me anymore) so i think about my real parents a lot. Is it possible to ever find them? how?
