A Meteor Exploded With The Force Of An Atom Bomb But No One Noticed

NASA revealed that a massive meteor crashed into the Atlantic Ocean two or three of months ago with the force more than an atomic bomb. But nobody had a thought that it had impacted. Even yet having the damaging power of the Hiroshima bomb equivalent to approximately 13,000 tons of TNT, this specific fireball was actually small, exploding over the South Atlantic Ocean.



In 2013the Chelyabinsk crashed, it apparently weighed about 10 tons and released almost the energy equivalent to 0.5 million tons of TNT. As astronomy blogger Phil Plait suggests this incident, while dramatic, is basically not that rare. He said, "Impacts like this occur numerous times per year on average, with maximum going unseen. The planet Earth is mostly water, and even where there’s land, it’s thinly populated in general”


Regardless of concerns of population increasing, the human race is not as huge a target for possibly disturbing meteors as we'd think. With that said, NASA still considers the Near Earth Object Program (NEOP), an initiative which tracks the trajectory of thousands of objects which could possibly crash into Earth in the incoming 100 years.
