What is it like to witness a meteor? How is its reporting and history formed from different people's perspectives of the event? This book uses first-hand accounts from eyewitnesses, survivors, the emergency services, scientists and the media to describe what happened before, during and after the meteor which hit Chelyabinsk, Russia in 2013. We also look at the science: the facts, the timeline and the physical causes and effects of the meteor. Why was the disaster in Russia unique? And how will it affect the area in the future?
