Superman says, I let the meteor burn rather than destroy it

“If I released all of the meteor’s energy at once by destroying it, I would have made it much worse,” Superman said in a press conference. Using scientific data to underline his safety analysis, Superman explained why he did not destroy the Russian meteorite, reported Kyle Hill for Scientific American.

Superman remains a reclusive hero. He agreed to attending the press conference only after residents from Chelyabinsk, Russia tracked him down after the meteor exploded over their homes on February 15.

Superman reassured reporters that he is as committed as ever to saving the Earth and he would definitely handle the big stuff.

But behind the hype, do we know enough about Superman to believe he will keep saving the Earth? Only a few months ago, famous astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson pinned down the exact location of Krypton, Superman’s home planet.
