PBS continues a streak of exceptional documentary work with this episode of NOVA. The meteor strike over Russia was caught on multiple cameras as the space rock descended through the atmosphere, causing damage and casualties in the city below. The documentary follows the story of what happened, with commentary from experts who note that what happened might well have been far worse under different circumstances. Very compelling and informative.
