UrFU leads mission to extract largest meteorite piece from Lake Chebarkul
The fragment weighs a total of 650 pounds and is officially considered the extracted portion of of the Chelyabinsk meteorite by the Committee on Meteorites of the Academy of Sciences.
Pieces of the extracted portion have been taken to laboratories at both Chelyabinsk State University and Ural Federal University for further examination.
"A meteorite has several structural components - light and dark streaks," UrFU Associate Professor Victor Grokhovsky said. "[Such characteristics] would be interesting to see on a large piece. We have seen so far on small pieces. We can offer [to] investigate the anisotropy of the magnetic properties of the meteorite and modeling of process that form such a structure."
