Here’s a non RussiaToday source

Isn’t this only the second time in history that there have been recorded human casualties from space debris? Does this have something to do with that passed really close by recently?

This wasn’t related to Asteroid 2012 DA14. I think this is one of the very rare instances of human casualties caused by space debris, and perhaps the only one I can think of that has apparently caused widespread casualties and from the photos I can see on RT, significant structural damage.

There’s some more photos here: [Link: rt.com…]

Twenty years ago an event like this would have put some US and Soviet missile launch controllers in a very uncomfortable position.

It certainly would’ve made a lot of folks very nervous if nothing else.

And with nuclear missiles still in existence (and more countries trying to obtain them), it still can.

Imagine if it hit Tehran instead. They would have been pointing the finger at Israel immediately.
