LARGEST FRAGMENT OF METEORITE IN RUSSIA FOUND

MOSCOW (TIP): Divers have found the largest piece so far of a meteorite which hit Russia’s Chelyabinsk region in February this year, a scholar said. Xinhua quoted Sergei Zamozdra, an associate professor at South Urals State University, as saying that preliminary studies showed the 570-kg fragment came from the Chelyabinsk meteorite. It was recovered from a depth of 20 metres in the Chebarkul Lake, he said. It will be placed at a local museum after undergoing Xrays and other scientific tests. The meteorite exploded over the Chelyabinsk region in central Russia on February 15, injuring more than 1,600 people and damaging property worth about 1 billion roubles ($30 million).
