Meteorite Pulled From Bottom of Russian Lake
More than 1,000 people were injured in Central Russia when a meteorite slammed into Lake Chebarkul in February. A 10,000 ton rock burned up over Central Russia breaking windows and shaking building and now scientists have recovered what was left of the rock from the bottom of the lake.
A team of divers pulled a five foot long rock from the lake to study it. It was wrapped in a special covering before being pulled from the bottom of the lake and once on shore it was weighed, but the scale broke when it reached 1,255 pounds.
The meteorite that was pulled from the lake is believed to be only a fraction of the original size but still is one of the biggest fragments ever found.
