Meteor Explosion Creates Dust Layer in Stratosphere!
The effects of a meteor that exploded over Russia in February are still being felt. Researchers say in addition to leaving over 1,000 people hurt, it also created a new layer of dust in the Earth's stratosphere.
The explosion from earlier this year sent out a burst of energy 30 times greater than that of the atomic bomb that leveled Hiroshima during World War II.
Some dust fragments the size of buses crashed to the ground ... and others are still up there in the atmosphere, scientists say.
