The Chelyabinsk russian meteorite is being widely studied by scientists. Here is an article released by UC Davis where a consortium of scientists from multiple institutions are coordinating their studies.

A recent article in the media about Chelyabinsk and things we have learned from it - http://www.space.com/23423-russian-fireball-meteor-airburst-risk.html

Best regards,

Really cool!! I picked up a 28 gram piece of this from Aerolite at the ASAE show, it has some iron out-flow in it too which is neat.
