Asteriod fall in russia

  1. 1. ENGLISH PROJECT ON THE ASTEROID FALLING IN RUSSIA
  2. 2. WHAT IS A METEOR? 1. Asteroids are small bodies that orbit the Sun as the Earth does 2. Larger asteroids are called planetoids or minor planets, smaller ones often called meteoroids 3. Once any of these enters our planet's atmosphere, it becomes a meteor 4. Many meteors break into pieces or burn up entirely as they speed through the atmosphere 5. Once meteors or fragments actually hit the earth's surface, they become meteorites
  3. 3. DID YOU KNOW ? A meteor crashing in Russia's Ural Mountains has injured at least 950 people, as the shockwave blew out windows and rocked buildings. Most of those hurt, in the Chelyabinsk region where meteorites fell, suffered cuts and bruises but at least 46 remain in hospital. A fireball streaked through the clear morning sky, followed by loud bangs.
  4. 4. ▪ A large meteorite landed in a lake near Chebarkul, a town in Chelyabinsk region. ▪ The meteor's dramatic passing was witnessed in Yekaterinburg, 200km (125 miles) to the north, and in Kazakhstan, to the south. ▪ Officials say a large meteor partially burned up in the lower atmosphere, resulting in a number of meteorites falling earthwards.
  5. 5. ▪ Thousands of rescue workers have been dispatched to the area to provide help to the injured . ▪ The explosion was so strong that some windows in our building and in the buildings that are across the road and in the city in general, the windows broke. ▪ One Russian politician said the event was not a meteor shower but a US weapons test,
  6. 6. 985 people had sought medical treatment, including 204 children. Two people in the town of Kopeysk were in a serious condition. A meteorite had also landed in a lake 1km outside Chebarkul, which has a population of 46,000. The Russian Academy of Sciences estimates that the meteor weighed about 10 tonnes and entered the Earth's atmosphere at a speed of at least 54,000 km/h (33,000mph).
