Meteor Tourism

Just about every news event creates a demand for some kind of tourism.  And the recent astronomical event in Russia is due to create some influx of tourists hoping to catch a glimpse of the impact or even a fragment of  "space rock".

A quick Google Scholar search on "meteor crater tourism" found this interesting paper.  Some neat maps too!

I mean, we will typically hang out in the darkened backyard to watch for shooting stars!  Not that I want one to zoom over the house and blow out all the windows, but if one was nearby,  I might just need to check it out (and take my camera).
