Russian journal "Science" publishes article on Chelyabinsk meteorite

"Science", a Russian academic journal dealing with scientific investigations, recently published an article on the February meteorite crash in the Chelyabinsk region.

The academic article features claims supported by a team of 59 scientists from nine countries, of which six were scientific faculty members at Ural Federal University.

UrFU specialists were the first to arrive at the site of the meteor crash in the Chelyabinsk region. Faculty members oversaw the drilling of a 23-foot wide hold in the ice of Chebarkul Lake. Later in the year, the UrFU team extracted the largest meteor fragment found to date.
