Don't panic.

There's only a suggestion the meteorite that may part of a pack of space rocks is heading our way.

A highly speculative report from the space-scribes at io9 explores the possibility that the 18-meter wide, 11,000-tonne space rock that exploded in a 460-kiloton kind of way may be part of a bigger body.

That body may reportedly have been chipped away, or fragmented outright. And those chunks, bear with us, could be following a similar trajectory to the one that injured more than 1,100 people in what's now being billed as The Meteorite Capital of Russia.

Meanwhile, back on Earth, scientists combing the site of the blast -- a city of more than a million people east of the Ural mountains -- have been able to peg the original orbit of the meteor, also called a bollide.

In a study published last month, researchers suggest the blast, very sensibly called a superbolide, "was the result of the decay of a larger asteroid."

David Nesvorny , a researcher from Colorado's Southwest Research Institute, isn't so sure the sky would be falling anytime soon. Instead, he suggests in the online journal Nature, that the errant space rock may have had it's trajectory shaped by various cosmic fender-benders.

"It is not obvious to me why [the Chelyabinsk meteor] cannot be a fragment that was produced by a collision in the main asteroid belt, and evolved to its impact orbit by a few planetary encounters," he told the journal Nature.

The Russian Academy of Sciences said in a statement hours after the Friday morning fall that the meteor entered the Earth's atmosphere at a speed of at least 54,000 kph (33,000 mph) and shattered about 30-50 kilometers (18-32 miles) above ground. The fall caused explosions that broke glass over a wide area. (AP Photo/ Yevgenia Yemelyanova, Chelyabinsk.ru)

  • FILE - In this 1953 file photo, trees lie strewn across the Siberian countryside 45 years after a meteorite struck the Earth near Tunguska, Russia. The 1908 explosion is generally estimated to have been about 10 megatons; it leveled some 80 million trees for miles near the impact site. The meteor that streaked across the Russian sky Friday, Feb. 15, 2013, is estimated to be about 10 tons. It exploded with the power of an atomic bomb over the Ural Mountains, about 5,000 kilometers (3,000 miles) west of Tunguska. (AP Photo, File)
