        What Does the Russian Meteorite Tell Us About Surveillance Culture? | PBS Idea Channel

        In February, 2013 a meteorite burst into flames in the atmosphere above Russia.

The incredible number of views and angles filmed was made possible by Russia's bizarre driving culture and the MILLIONS of car dash cams installed all over the country. But besides providing the world with some hilarious, frightening, and amazing footage, the dash cams also make us think about surveillance, and what role it will play in the future.
