CMGI Did X-Ray CT Scanning for First Study of Chelyabinsk Meteorite

The meteor that exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia, in February 2013 was “a wake-up call,” according to a University of California, Davis, scientist who participated in analyzing the event. The work is published Nov. 7 in the journal Science by an international team of researchers.

“If humanity does not want to go the way of the dinosaurs, we need to study an event like this in detail,” said Qing-zhu Yin, professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at UC Davis.
