MONTREAL – The meteor that streaked across the sky above the Ural Mountains in Russia on Friday and caused several hundred injuries caught Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield off guard.
Hadfield, who is aboard the International Space Station on a five-month visit, said he missed the big event from his vantage point in outer space.
“We weren’t in a position to see that meteorite do all that damage in Russia,” he told University of Waterloo students during a video link-up Friday.
