    A 10-ton meteorite blasted through the sky above central Russia Friday morning. It triggered an explosion that sent fireballs and debris across a 200-square-mile area. Hundreds of people were injured, mostly by broken glass from the shock waves caused by the impact. Gordon Tokumatsu reports from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena for the NBC4 News at 5 p.m. on Feb. 15, 2013.
