MOSCOW- Scientists in Russia recovered a chunk of a meteor from the bottom of a lake it crashed into near Chelybinsk.
It blazed across the sky in February and its strike was the largest recorded in more than a century.
The shock-wave hurt more than 16-hundred people and the resulting explosion was estimated to be as strong as 20 Hiroshima-type atom bombs.
The chunk that was recovered weighed more than 12-hundred pounds.
