That T .rex who's about to take a six-mile-wide asteroid to the face might have fathered a whole new world.
Russian paranoia pays off once again, as a security camera captures footage of the moment that a fragment of the Chelyabinsk meteor smashes into a lake.
The results are in after Russia's investigation into the Chelyabinsk meteor, and they don't paint a pretty picture.
One lucky photographer managed to capture the amazing moment that an explosion occurred during a recent meteor shower.
The meteor event that captured the attention of Russian and the world earlier this year is set to become a bigger part of history thanks to an innovative Olympic medal design.
A U.K.-based data vizualization geek has cobbled together the entire history of eyewitness accounts of meteor strikes on Earth, and the visual look pretty violent.
"Duck and cover is not an option" says scientist.
Just a few hours ago, a very large meteor passed over Russia. Details are still sparse, but there are reports of a massive shock wave shattering windows, and videos showing a blinding flash as the object passed overhead.
Meteorites traveling towards the surface of Mars can often be traveling at several times the speed of sound as they hit the planet's thin atmosphere. A new study of images taken from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) suggests the hurtling rocks trigger shockwaves that roll through the air actually triggering avalanches on the dusty surface before they strike.
NASA's going to be deploying a network of 15 cameras across the United States to boost the coverage of its "All-sky Fireball Network," which is designed to track incoming meteorites, determine their trajectories, and possibly even figure out where they land.
