Fr.: chasme   

In astrogeology, long, narrow, steep sided depressions on planets and Moon, for example, Melas Chasma and Candor Chasma on Mars.

Chelyabinsk meteor
  شهاب ِ چلیابینسک   
šahâb-e Chelyabinsk

Fr.: météore de Tcheliabinsk   

A → meteor exploded on February 15, 2013 over Chelyabinsk, southern Russia.The explosion occurred at a height of 20 km above Earth, releasing 500 kilotons → TNT equivalent of energy, approximately 30 times the yield of the nuclear bomb over Hiroshima.
