A Picture I Wouldn't Want to Be There to Take

 
Russian Meteor
 
Apparently, an 11 ton meteorite has hit in the Ural Mountains of Russia. Some 500 people reported for medical treatment (30 some were hospitalized), and a zinc factory collapsed, either as the result of a direct hit, or a resulting shock wave.

Amazing. I suppose we're always in some infinitesimal risk of something like this happening. I've never heard of it happening in my lifetime (maybe it has?).
 
In any case, I hope I don't look out my windshield this morning on the way to work and see something like this.
