Exceptional Meteorites

The world of meteorites is an exceptional world, and we already introduced you to some of its secrets in the Origins section as well as in our Meteorite Charts. However, a meteorite causing any kind of physical damage to people, animals, cars, and buildings, usually receives more public attention than a desert find proving to be a genuine lunar or Martian rock. The Nakhla meteorite that fell in Egypt in 1911, caused more attention by the story having allegedly killed a dog, than by the subsequent realization that it actually represents a rare rock of our red neighbor, the planet Mars.
