About the Book:
Asteroids, meteoroids, meteors, meteorites! What in the World! Gordon the Gullible Globe hears Astrid Asteroid wailing because a piece of her rock has broken off, followed shortly by a loud BOOM! Matty Meteorite has collided with Earth and there is trouble. Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo and her team whisk off in Freeda the Flying Ambulance to Chelyabinsk, Russia, to repair the damage. Can Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo reunite Astrid Asteroid and Matty Meteorite?
Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo’s Meteorite Mission ties into one of the most newsworthy events of the year, which took place on February 15, 2013, when a bright ball of fire lit up the skies over the Southern Urals region of Russia. What became known as the Chelyabinsk meteor had entered the Earth’s atmosphere at almost 60 times the speed of sound and the airburst from the meteor explosion and the following shockwave injured over 1,500 people and damaged 7,200 buildings in the area.
