The USS Maine explodes mysteriously in Havana Harbor, the teddy bear is born, President Franklin D. Roosevelt survives an assassination attempt, and Jeffrey Dahmer is found guilty, all on this day.
2013: A meteor explodes over Chelyabinsk Oblast in Russia's Ural Mountains region, injuring 1,500 people as a shock wave blows out windows and rocks buildings. Measuring between 17 and 20 meters in size, it is the largest known natural object to have entered Earth's atmosphere since a small asteroid or comet destroyed a wide, remote, forested area of Siberia in 1908. The Chelyabinsk meteor is also the only meteor confirmed to have resulted in a large number of injuries.
