Just Another Fukang Meteorite


The Fukang pallasite is believed to originate from deep inside intact meteors
created during the formation of the solar system about 4.5 billion years ago and very few specimens are thought to have survived their descent through Earth’s atmosphere. An anonymous group of collectors currently holds the largest portion which weighs 419.5 kg (925 pounds). -- TwistedSifter

Your Say

Am I really the first to be so brilliant as to come up with it? Or more like, the first to go so low as to give it utterance...

That is one big, strange Fukang pallasite.
