Exploding shooting star 'superbolide' creates HUGE FIREBALL as it bursts over city

Recommended Posts

A SHOOTING star turned into a massive fireball and exploded over a city in China with the equivalent of 540 tonnes of TNT.

The astrological event, dubbed a “superbolide” was an exploding meteor that shined brighter than the moon in Yunnan Province, Shangri-La County.

NASA described the star as a huge fireball that dazzled eyewitnesses who saw it flit through the sky yesterday.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing a large shooting star which they duly recorded on their mobile phones.

Or its one of thousands of meteorites that come in contact with the Earths atmosphere every year.

....or is it a meteor at all? So far as I know no meteor rocks has been found or collected after the explosion.

:gsbrnint: So which one of us was thinking too loud?

There's been much said about harnessing asteroids for mining purposes. Mining of what? Iron? If that's the case, think electro-magnetism. If it can be drawn in, it can also be released like a Mercury/Gemini/Apollo capsule's trajectory when returning to Earth.
