On a more serious note, that bang was big enough to register on some USGS seismometers.



The first seismometer is located near Kurchatov, Kazakhstan; the second in Borovoye, Kazakhstan; and the third is part of the ZAA0 array (Zalesovo), located in the Altayskiy Kray region of Russia.


Some more videos of it here

I still do not understand why we cut funding to our space program. I do not see anything, we are spending money on today, as being that important. I would even go so far as to say the space program is more important than that large, overgrown military we have.

Did hear an interesting stat though. We spend five times as much on free postage for congress than we do scanning the skies for near earth objects.
