Enterprising Russians plan to earn on the "meteorite"

Russian businessmen want to register trademarks with the word "meteorite". They have already submitted applications for registration of trademarks "Chelyabinsk meteorite", "Ural meteorite", "Cheborkul meteorite" and "Mysterious meteorite." Among the applicants there are manufacturers of food products, souvenirs and tourist companies from Chelyabinsk, St. Petersburg and Moscow, reported "Interfax".

The meteorite exploded in the sky over the Chelyabinsk region on February 15. The blast broke glass in windows, destroyed several buildings. The total damage is estimated at one billion rubles.
