  •  Question for you on the Russian meteor's diameter (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Your diary based on the Scientific American says the diameter was 15m. The graphic you appended at the end of the posting says 2m (roughly the size of a Smart car) and your text already noted the wide disparities in estimated mass of the meteor.

    Do you know if the diameter/mass is still being debated/analyzed, or if this discrepancy in the graphic is a vestige of the earlier reporting and just not up-to-date?
