Proof in the Paddock

Well a lady found a 9cm chunk of the meteorite a bit southwest of Christchurch. You can read the full story here. It looks to be just a run-of-the-mill space rock, and not some deadly piece of plutonium from a satellite.

By this morning I noticed the story had been picked up by at least 140 online papers, which is about as big as NZ news gets internationally (provided it doesn’t involve Greenpeace 🙂
