The universe showed us that sci-fi has nothing on it today by distracting everyone with 150-foot asteroid making a close pass by Earth, and then hitting Russia with a 50-foot asteroid that flashed over a remote area as an incredibly bright fireball before exploding several miles up in (***you may want to turn your speakers down for this one***) a loud, window-shattering kaboom, causing falling glass and other injuries to 1,000 some people. NASA says this is the largest such event since the meteor that exploded over a nearly unpopulated area of Tunguska, Siberia, in 1908, flattening trees for miles around–although in that case, the cause wasn't understood until much later (and the first expedition didn't even reach the area for a decade).
