Four pound fragment from meteorite found in Russian lake

CHELYABINSK, Russia

The fragment weighs about four pounds. A ski expedition team found it in a frozen lake nearby.

The meteorite blew up over the Siberian city of Chelyabinsk on February 15, injuring nearly 1,500 people and causing widespread property damage.

Astronomers say they've recovered more than 100 fragments from the space rock, but none as large as this latest discovery.
