Yeah, I too always wondered why so many meteorites tend to hit Russia, while none seem to ever hit Monaco. Strange world.
Simple statistical probability. Russia is honkin' BIG.

Is it possible that what we think is a meterorite is really part of a spaceship that was blown apart eons ago and a piece of it reached Earth?
Would sort of blow apart anyone who takes the Bible literally.

Could some meteorites be starship debris?
Yes. After John Harrison 'detonated' Starfleet, the pieces were sent back in time through a subspace rift kind of like the Enterprise C.
The detonated pieces of Starfleet are pissed at JJ Abrams for screwing up their timeline and are attempting to take him out in order to exact revenge.
However, their attack plan was flawed because they were mistaken in believing that everything in the Trek universe was inwented in Russia, and as such, they directed their attack on Russia assuming that JJ was there. Stupid debris...

That is why I do my best to avoid the oceans, as well as Russia. Would not want to risk the high odds of getting hit by a meteorite there. I mean, what if the meteorite is a time capsule from the future carrying spoilers for Star Trek XIII? I would not want to suffer a heart attack learning that Brent Spiner is back playing Data's head buried under San Francisco.

Not according to The Book of Prometheus, written by Ridley the Apostle:

What is it with Russia and exploding meteors?

If aliens are responsible, why do they hate Russia so much?

Maybe they LOVE Russia and are protecting it by blowing apart the meteors with their Ray Guns.

^^

On a side note, in the early 80s, when I was hanging around in Hartford, I occasionally hosted a radio show at WRTC called "Alien Rock."

Maybe the signals have finally reached them.

If that was a warp core its explosion would have wiped out half the continent. Its an interesting idea for sure and I am one of those people that believes life is out there.
