Russian news agency Interfax is reporting that thieves have stolen a three-tonne meteorite from the yard of the Tunguska Space Event foundation, whose director said it was the part of meteor that caused a massive explosion in Siberia in 1908.
. . .
“It winds up that it disappeared said [foundation director] Lavbin. “Our colleagues are establishing what got lost, where the rock is and why they only came to us about it now,” he said.
Hmmmm. I can’t even begin to hypothesize how that could be stolen?
Oh, and comments after the article suggest that this news item is bogus. I still posted it, because I like it regardless of veracity.
