Chelyabinsk Meteorite Exhibition

An exhibition dedicated to the Chelyabinsk meteorite has been prepared in the Ural Geological Museum, whereas the regional office of “TASS” news agency held a press conference. The Head of Sector of Nature of the Chelyabinsk Museum of Local History Eduard Shaigorodsky answered a lot of questions. According to him, the mass media representatives were most of all interested in the history of the meteorite and its exact weight.

      “I had to tell in all detail how the data on the mass of the meteorite were obtained. I reminded to the audience that the figure of 505 pounds was the mean figure derived from the results of three weighings, adjusted for equipment error ... Unfortunately, no official data have been published concerning the history of the meteorite, the things that happened to it before it entered the Earth’s atmosphere. The data will be obtained soon - after the March conference in Houston (USA) where the report prepared jointly by the experts of the laboratory for the study of extraterrestrial matter of the Ural Federal University and their Japanese colleagues will be read” – Shaigorodsky reported.
