26 Multi-Kiloton Impacts Since 2001!?

That’s the number the B612 Foundation is hinting at leading up to their press event on April 22nd. Interesting approach in releasing the actual number early, building interest to see the animation that they’ll show at the event proper. There’s been discussion of using satellite data to show asteroid entries, but I’ve never seen a report discussing how many they witnessed. I guess any classification of the ground-based explosion sensors was rendered moot by Chelyabinsk, though looking at their website, I guess I’m surprised no one thought of looking into this before.
