Farmers Discover Rare Meteorite in Minnesota Corn Field
For 40 years, University of Minnesota professor Calvin Alexander has been contacted by people who think they’ve found meteorites. They call, write, and come in to the lab of the curator of meteorites with rocks they think, or hope, are from outer space. Over four decades, Alexander has seen about 5,000 “meteorwrongs” that turn out to be regular Earth rocks. Until now.
