Um, so a really big meteorite slammed into a Russian city last night

  • 900+ people hurt in and around Chelyabinsk, a city in Russia, by a meteorite that rained down on the region, splintered apart, broke windows and damaged buildings. And hurt a bunch of people. You know, something that happens all the time. While these kinds of events are rare, a similar one was reported to hit Siberia about 100 years ago. source

UPDATE: Changed to reflect new total, via the Washington Post.
