As I have intimated of late, I have been spending most of time studying and writing about Near Earth Objects (NEOs): asteroids, comets and man made objects [e.g., satellites, spacecraft and debris].
As soon as I saw the news about the Russian meteor a thought crossed my mind. This could have been man made!
Yes, it could have been space debris, probably Russian, given that they were notorious for their littering of space (some due to all of their many spacecrafts that blew up). But, could it have been intentional. A drone? The U.S. checking out Russia’s much speculated space defense.
Bottom line: I am not convinced that this was a chunk of an asteroid or comet. It could have been. Just something tells me that this just didn’t seem right.
