In February, a massive, 12,000-ton meteor—the largest known to hit Earth since  1908—flew through the skies above Chelyabinsk, Russia at 60 times  the speed of sound and shattered into pieces. The meteor caused damaged to about  7,200 buildings and caused nearly 1,500 people to seek medical attention for  injuries. Luckily, no one was killed; luckier still, dozens of local residents  caught the event on camera.
