NASA has been observing the moon for “lunar meteor showers” — some causing explosions on impact — for eight years. Now, the agency is announcing seeing the largest explosion in all this program’s history.
“It exploded in a flash nearly 10 times as bright as anything we’ve ever seen before,” said Bill Cooke with NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office of the explosion that took place March 17, according to NASA’s website.
The explosion was so large, in fact, that it could have been seen from Earth with the naked eye.
NASA scientists speculate the meteoroid weighed 40 kg (about 88 pounds) and was less than 0.5 meters (about 1.6 feet) wide. But moving at 56,000 miles per hour, they compare its resulting explosion to the detonation of five tons of TNT.
Kai was a homeless man who became a hero in the eyes of many after he used a hatchet to stop a crazy man from attacking two women. The video of Kai telling his story became something of a viral sensation. And as with most viral video stars, Kai seemed to have drifted back into obscurity. Until today…today he’s a murder suspect. Police in New Jersey have just arrested Caleb Lawrence McGillvary (Kai’s real name). He is the prime suspect in the bludgeoning death of 71-year-old North Jersey attorney, Joseph Galfy.
WAIT UNTIL YOU HEAR WHO THE TURKISH PRIME MINISTER REPORTEDLY INVITED TO JOIN HIS ENTOURAGE DURING U.S. VISIT
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan allegedly invited a special personal guest to accompany him on his visit to the U.S. this week.
According to Turkish media, the father of one of the radical Islamist activists killed in Israel’s raid on the Mavi Marmara in 2010 (the Gaza flotilla) was included as an invited guest in the prime minister’s delegation in the hopes he might be able to meet President Barack Obama.
Furkan Doğan, a 19-year-old with both Turkish and U.S. citizenship, joined the Gaza flotilla where he expressed his desire for “martyrdom.” His father now wants the U.S. government to sue Israel over the raid in which the IDF says its forces were defending themselves from what appeared to them to be an organized attack launched by passengers armed with knives and metal bars as the commandos boarded the ship.
A man in Tampa, Florida, is being accused of secretly slipping his girlfriend an abortion drug, an act that killed the couple’s unborn baby. The alleged details of the troubling story are ghastly.
Prosecutors claim that John Andrew Welden, 28, switched the label on an abortion pill bottle to make it look like Amoxicillin, a common antibiotic. After the woman, identified as 26-year-old Remee Lee, took the drug, she purportedly miscarried, reports The Tampa Tribune.
In March, Welden apparently found out that the woman was pregnant. While he purportedly wanted her to have an abortion, Lee decided to keep the baby and allegedly said that she would care for the child on her own.
