Dr. Ural Federal University (Urfu) Victor Grokhovsky warned of an impending meteor to the Ground danger, informs TASS. "In this century 1 a large meteorite exploded in the sky over Chelyabinsk. It is likely that the Earth one or two times can be attacked by the "brothers" of the Chelyabinsk meteorite," - said the scientist.
The doctor stressed that his suspicion is based on statistical analysis of the attacks of the Earth for the last few centuries. Grokhovsky noted that most large meteorites strike our planet about 3 times in 100 years.
Scientists are watching for potentially hazardous celestial bodies, but could not find many of them. "For example, was planned to launch a number of satellites that could monitor the situation. But at the moment the topic went to regress. I wish to note that over the 1.5 years we have not progressed in predicting the convergence of meteorites with the Earth," added the doctor. Due to the fact that the devices that track the approach of dangerous space bodies that are bn, the scientist offers to create global cooperation on this issue.
1 of the largest meteorites in history exploded on the outskirts of Chelyabinsk February 15, 2013. Suffered 1613 people, most of them from broken shards of a celestial body glasses.
