Radars have a lot of technical limitations and require very specific design criteria to detect certain objects. I advise everyone reading this thread to take a second and google/wiki the basic principles of radar to get a basic understanding of this topic.

Or to truly conceptualize just how damn fast 33,000mph is, and why it is so hard to see something moving at that velocity.

For reference, 33,000mph is 15.4 km/s and the terminal speed of ICBM warheads during re-entry according to this 1963 study is only 9.5km/s.

Let's put you in an observatory and see how successful you are at identifying and tracking celestial objects. Nobody's perfect and keeping tabs on the entire sky is a huge project.

I think what he's getting at is that the asteroids we know about, don't hit us. But the one we don't see coming, hits us. Isn't this strange to you?

No it is not. We only know about them because they hit us. There are plenty we don't know about that miss us so we never know about them. And plenty we don't know about that hit us every single day, but aren't big enough to cause damage. Or they are big enough to cause damage, but they land somewhere unpopulated.

Why would that be strange? We can't track what we can't see and we can't keep an eye on everything.

I for one would highly doubt any kind of serious rubble. The meteor was said to be going around 33,000 MPH. So it had to be going thousands of mph when it struct earth. Crashing through a couple of buildings, especially brick buildings. I would imagine the meteor disintegrated most of them breaks upon impact as you can see here.

Maybe not so common as some people on here are trying to claim.

This meteorite was the biggest to hit the earth since Tunguska. About 15m across. A single 4m meteorite hits about once every year.
