just checking....because the sonic boom caused most of the damage, as I understand but I couldn't imagine a boom knocking down walls.

On the other hand, those Russky building inspectors are pretty lax :)

Interesting question. Now I wonder if damage from a sonic boom can be measured
by the size of the object. Size does matter dont-cha-know.

“...I couldn’t imagine a boom knocking down walls....”

That one factory bldg (in one pic I saw) really suffered some upper-level damage. The pic stunned me; looked like it took a direct hit. Guess those spanning beams bent and collapsed like spaghetti.

It was not the sonic boom. It was the explosion of the mass caused by entry into the atmosphere

The exothermic front from a detonation is supersonic, and would probably be considered a 'sonic boom'.
