Russia’s Roskosmos space agency has admitted that the object was not detected by telescopes, as they say, it had a peculiar trajectory and was coming from the wrong angle to be spotted.
The asteroid could have brought some type of virus or disease with it that can spread in a new habitat.
But what exactly exploded in the sky over Chelyabinsk?
German astrophysicist Illobrand von Ludwiger has been researching odd meteor falls for almost 40 years and revealed that some of the asteroids are not what they seem.
Thus, on November 11, 1956, two Swedish workers Stig Ekberg and Harry Sjoberg were driving when they saw a flattened sphere shaped object.Suddenly it made a sharp turn toward them and started slowly gliding down at an altitude of about a meter. It was illuminating the surrounding landscape with a tremendous amount of light, the witnesses said. The air smelled like ozone and smoldering insulation.
After about ten minutes the object lifted off leaving a small hot shiny rock on the ground. The material appeared to be common tungsten carbide, well-known in the early 1950s. It was pobedit, a sintered carbide alloy designed in the USSR in 1929.
But the shape of the rock was unusual as well as its nature.
