"If you are incredulous that a 10,000 ton asteroid could be rendered to dust before impact with the ground, you are not alone."
- Harold Saive
David Talbott of The Thunderbolts Project delivers a scholarly narration on the huge meteor that entered Earth’s atmosphere over Cherlyabinsk, Russia on 2/15/2013.
As a brief aside, certain segments of the video show the early morning Russian sky had been sprayed with long, persistent contrails that experienced observers might rather call “chemtrails”.
A flash of light more brilliant than the sun initiated a near total disintegration of the mammoth intruder from outer space. Originally estimated to be 10 tons, infrasound data from numerous stations around the planet corrected the estimate up from 10 tons to a whopping 7,000 to 10,000 tons. But despite the significant mass, the meteor was disintegrated to pieces of gravel in under 30 seconds and while still airborne. The original guess that the meteor crashed through the ice of a nearby lake was found to be false when divers investigated and found no evidence.
One haunting telescopic video clip of the meteor’s explosive destruction reveals what appears to be a piloted craft intersecting the meteor’s descent at blinding speed. Navigating to the far side, the craft appears to be responsible for the explosive demise of the meteor into smaller fragments. In the age of photoshop and image manipulation we might dismiss this clip as a hoax except for one thing; the explosion sent meteor fragments in only one direction and away from the alleged craft as one would expect if the meteor had been zapped with an energy weapon.

The loss of a tooth is a minor deformity and a major pain. Although dental implants are available, the healing process can take months on end, and implants that fail to align with the ever-growing jawbone tend to fall out. If only adult teeth could be regenerated, right?
According to a study published in the latest Journal of Dental Research, a ...
