In a Norsk article at http://www.forskning.no/Artikler/2006/juni/1150188651.93 Professor Kaare Aksnes of the Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics at the University of Oslo basically says that someone got a bit over-excited and grossly exaggerated the size of the Nord-Troms meteorite. Here's an Aftenposten article in English, summarising that. I suppose I could say that the media could have shown a bit more scepticism in reporting this, but then so could have I.
I suppose that just goes to show that scientists are human after all, and are capable of genuine human excitement when something exceptional happens! And I see nothing wrong with that.
