A meteor hit the earth and exploded with 2.1 kilotons of force last month, but the US Air Force has made no mention of the event.
NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory confirmed an object of unspecified size travelling at 24.4 kilometres per second struck earth in Greenland, just 43 kilometres north of an early missile warning Thule Air Base on the 25th of July, 2018.
Director of the Nuclear Information Project for the Federation of American Scientists, Hans Kristensen, tweeted about the impact, but Americas Air Force has not reported the event.
Mr. Kristensen argues its concerning there was no public warning from the US government about the incident.
Had it entered at a more perpendicular angle, it would have struck the earth with significantly greater force, he writes on Business Insider.
Mr Kristensen points to the example of the Chelyabinsk meteor, a 20-metre space rock that exploded in the air over Russia without warning on the 15th of February 2013.
It was the size of a house, brighter than the sun and visible up to 100 kilometres away.

“Na, na, na, na-na! You missed again!”
Theres a good chance the Empire knows were here.
Went out at 4:30 this morning to feed my horses and saw something break up in the SW sky. It’s not uncommon to see the occasional shooting star or meteor, but I never saw one break up like that...

Ya know, since the Star Gate series went off the air, I’ve lost touch with what is really going on out there.
“... just 43 kilometres north of an early missile warning Thule Air Base...”
USAF Statement: Missed me, bitch.
I’m in SE Washington so the breakup would have been somewhere over central Oregon I presume.

Ok, meteors don’t “strike” the earth and it doesn’t sound like this one did though the article is horribly written. Sounds like it exploded 43 km over the earth, and a liberal science group wants to blame the US Air Force.
It’s those bugs again someone better tell Johnny Rico, Career Sgt. Zim & the rest of the Mobile Infantry.

Well if you state the velocity and energy then the size, e.g. the mass is already specified and, assuming my arithmetic is correct works out to be about 28,000kgs or 28 metric tons. If this were a sphere of solid iron it would be a diameter of just shy of 2 m.

Beat me too it, my first thought was wondering test or demonstration...
