Real Time Disaster
At 9:20am on the 15th of February 2013, in the Siberian city of Chelyabinsk something, not of this world was spotted blazing its way through the morning skies. In this episode we tell the story of the 2013 Chelyabinsk Meteorite strike through the incredible footage of the event, captured by those who actually witnessed it. Well use this remarkable amateur video to unpack the science and explore where the meteorite came from, its violent end and how it unleashed a force equivalent to thirty Hiroshima bombs on the unsuspecting Russian city.
On the 10th of May 2013, a giant wave of ice ripped through homes in the small community of Ochre Beach in Manitoba, Canada. One day later, south of the boarder at Lake Millie Lacs in the United States, another strange moving wall of ice made landfall at Izatys Resort. This rare major ice shove was caught on camera. Harnessing this incredible footage we can now get closer than ever to one of natures strangest events, explore the forces at work and reveal a unique perspective on the destructive power of ice in motion.
