Playing out of his while you're sleeping and massive tents on meteor exploded over the sky in Russia and at least 500 people.
Are hurt this morning.
-- -- -- -- It was something like that happen in this world.
Were there any warning signs besides that trail of smoke they get it happened here let's bring in Janice Dean Janice Dean you know things that happen in this world and -- world.
Who should we be worried about a meteoric well I think the reason that this is such a popular story right now and a tragic in some cases that fortunately no one has died.
But we've seen 40500 people hurt.
Basically from broken glass because of this asteroid.
Moving into the Earth's atmosphere so it's an -- -- space rock before it moves into the Earth's atmosphere once it moves into the Earth's atmosphere.
It's heats up in the friction makes it you know makes the light across the smoke.
Exactly and you know in this age of YouTube -- video that's why we're seeing all this incredible video and you people are nervous because.
We have another asteroid -- -- today is going to come very close relatively close to earth at 171000 miles so I think people are hypersensitive to this.
This type of -- that happens.
Once in ten years it.
It's -- me calm and to have meteors.
And should the earth.
Tommy and absolutely what they burn out before they hit the ground so it one difference that we want to make sure people know so it's an asteroid before it moves into the Earth's atmosphere.
It becomes a meteor once it gets into the Earth's atmosphere and if it touches landed touches the ground.
It's called -- so most of them burn up before -- yet here or -- -- -- and -- -- -- you have no idea actually happens old and mean it does happen all the time but this is extraordinary because not only were people tracking it and and cell -- Picturing -- what are the picture right there.
-- inevitably it was incredible and like I said because -- in this age of you know people have a lot of cell phones and cameras and that kind of thing that's why we're seeing all this video people funeral like ash and I'm nervous about -- Injure -- at how warning do we yet.
I think NASA tracks these things are able to track 90% of the asteroids that could come close to us but you know in this case there was really no warning -- people are -- global don't know what's going on eleven of.
We're in the in the in the video game.
You could shoot an asteroid that out of the sky I don't know Armageddon in the movies Bob Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck -- but it who -- -- -- out of the club they've.
-- is that we're gonna have to do at some point if we know what's coming you know NASA does track these things and they have the capabilities to stop asteroids before they come close to lasers.
Lasers and all sorts of well and there's been a -- planets and some sort of a ship onto an asteroid.
But once again the asteroid it's gonna come between us and some of our whether -- from some of our -- -- today.
That's gonna be far away but a -- relatively close the closest.
And then you know and centuries so that's -- people are a little nervous but no it's not going to hit us -- let us now there's never one coming fast -- even at all even if we're in sports or in an interview -- the pictures are unbelievable I think that's why people are taking notice absolutely.
-- thank you.
