Breaking: Watch a meteorite explode over Russia

This morning a sizeable piece of space junk exploded over Russia's Ural Mountains shattering windows and causing some damage. Unlikely to be related to the larger asteroid that will make a close pass by the Earth later today, this remarkable event was still thankfully caught on camera as you can see above.

We know there have been 250 reported injuries so far and the video below shows some of the aftermath in one of the buildings hit by part of the rock.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
