  • 13 kilo tonne explosion near Brazil unnoticed

    NASA has reported that an explosion equivalent to 13,000 tonnes of TNT has occurred over the Atlantic off the coast of Brazil as a large piece of space rock entered the atmosphere. This appears to have been unnoticed in Brazil.

    EXCERPT:
    But the fireball over the Atlantic probably went unnoticed; it burnt up about 30km above the ocean surface, 1,000km off the Brazilian coast.
