gold928s writes: (Translated from Russian) According to the federal media, another meteorite can explode over the Earth today, 15 February, in the evening at 23:00.
The explosion of the first flying object was felt throughout the Chelyabinsk region, as well as in the neighboring Sverdlovsk, Tyumen and Kurgan regions, injuring 100, three seriously. Windows shattered and some buildings were affected. Many amazing videos of the sonic boom and trail surfacing on Youtube.

Submission + - Error re-routes all of the Internet through China->

Every "route advertisement" on the Internet is affected by every other "route advertisement" and it looks like the Chinese telecoms company accidently put out some "false" routes.

But each time it has been rejected and Mr Tedeschi — who has had other films accepted — believes it is because he wants to distribute it through BitTorrent
