Massive Meteorite Fragment Discovered in Tchebarkul

Divers have found allegedly the largest splinter of the meteorite, which fell in the Chelyabinsk Region in February.

      Experts intend to shortly salvage it from the bottom of Lake Tchebarkul.

      According to them and their preliminary estimate, the newly found fragment exceeds all the earlier finds in weight and size. So far it is impossible to establish the origin of the new sample.

      It should be noted that the divers have altogether found 12 fragments and handed them down to scientists for analyses and research.

      It is a reminder that early morning on February 15 dwellers of several Ural regions observed the falling of a bolide – a fireball with a smoky tail. The falling ended with a bright flash and a powerful explosion. The incident affected citizens in the Tyumen, Kurgan, and Sverdlovsk Regions, as well as northern territories of Kazakhstan.

      Chelyabinsk, which was close to the epicenter, suffered the shock wave damaging a set of buildings, including the Ice Palace.
