Russia proposes anti-asteroid plan following Chelyabinsk meteor incident
The idea was voiced by the Secretary of the Federal Security Service Nikolay Patrushev at a session in the Ural city of Yekaterinburg.
The Chelyabinsk meteor wasn’t detected by any telescope, which creates a potential threat of larger bodies going unnoticed, the official said.
The February 15 fall left over 1,500 people hurt and some 7,000 buildings damaged.
