Sterling K. Webb In  February, 2006, SWRI published this paper in Science announcing the discovery of an new recent asteroid family associated with the asteroid 1270 Datura: http://www.boulder.swri.edu/~bottke/Reprints/Nesvorny_Vok_Bottke_Science_2006_Datura_breakup.pdf    [Tusk will drop on Scribd] A summary of its conclusions:    “The newly identified family is a group of six 1- to 2.5-km-diameter asteroids, whose orbits[..
Numerical simulations show that stony meteorites with masses in the 10*8 to 10*11 kg range may undergo total disruption during atmospheric entry in the lower layers of the Earth’s atmosphere, in a similar manner to the Tunguska event that occurred over Siberia in 1908 [12]. Modelling also show that at a later stage of[..
