Meteorite hit Norway like an A-bomb last week

Strange how little press coverage this got this week:

"A large meteorite struck in northern Norway this week, landing with an impact an astronomer compared to the atomic bomb used at Hiroshima."

Maybe it's divine punishment for what Norway is doing to the whales.

More meteorite Norway news at Google News

"A spectacular fireball that flew over Norway last week, causing sonic booms and making the ground shake when a meteorite presumably hit the ground, was not quite as spectacular as first reported. Researchers now estimate the kinetic energy of the event as 300 tons of TNT, far short of the Hiroshima-like blast described in some news reports."
