Science Channel Premieres Special RUSSIAN METEOR EXPLOSION Tonight

Related: RUSSIAN METEOR EXPLOSION , Science Channel

The world premiere of the special RUSSIAN METEOR EXPLOSION debuts tomorrow, TONIGHT, FEBRUARY 16 at 8PM ET/PT on Science Channel.

Earlier today, a meteor weighing nearly 11 tons streaked across the sky and broke up Friday morning over the Russian mountain city of Chelyabinsk, 900 miles from the center of Moscow with the power equal to that of an atomic bomb.

Sonic blasts and tremendous shock waves smashed windows, collapsed roofs and injured nearly 1000 people. The intense flash of light and intensity was recorded by bystanders in nations hundreds of miles away. Meanwhile, a 13-story-size asteroid will pass within 17,100 miles of Earth this weekend before heading off into space.

Are the two related? Is there more to come? How do we prepare? Join Science Channel as we dare to ask these tough questions and more with our group of scientists, physicists, astronomers and expert minds from around the globe as we take a deeper dive into this other worldly phenomenon and what is next on the horizon for our planet's future.
