Meteorite Hits Cuba

Meteorite Hits Cuba
5 Comments

A Meteorite has detonated over western Cuba with fragments of it landing on homes and in streets of the city of Viñales.

A meteor was seen over the Florida keys moments before what is describes as a "massive" explosion over western Cuba.  

Fragments of the meteorite have landed far and wide in the area and people are picking up the fragments once cooled.

Of course, there's no way to know what's actually IN or ON those fragments; they're not from this planet!

Are they contaminated with some extra-terrestrial bacteria, virus, or some other infectious life form we don't even know about, that survived deep inside the rock?   Is it radioactive?  Is it poisonous to humans?   No one knows.

And yet people are picking these fragments up and playing with them like it's nothing.

    War of The Worlds, Invasion of The Body Snatchers.

    Reports of Cubans who touched the fragments have become simi-translucent, caused by an unknown fungus infection. Moving in herd like fashion toward the east end of the island, drooling slurred speech, mumbling "Gitmo, Gota Git Mo".

    non-science geek here-how does a meteor "explode" or as described "detonated' (like internal or detonated externally?? thanks

      The rock is moving so fast that entry into the atmosphere creates tremendous heat and pressure which makes it explode. When a spacecraft like the shuttle or capsule reenters, it is going slower and very controlled and those still have shields to dissipate the heat. The space shuttle used special tiles on its bottom side for this.

    James that may be dangerous thing to report. Could be considered as treason in wartime I would suppose.. if true that is.
