Talk about dumb luck. It's a good thing nobody was there when this happened.

A Norwegian family arrived at their cabin in Oslo recently to discover that a meteorite had apparently fallen through their roof, according to media reports.


Sounds like this was a nice find for them. It appears this may be a valuable meteorite.

Hans Amundsen, a member of NASA’s astrobiological institute, agreed that the meteorite was “very rare,” also, he told VG Nett, because “you can see in its cross-section that it contains bits of many different particles that are compressed together.” That indicates that another, larger meteorite smashed rock on another planet before the meteorite found in Oslo was propelled into outer space.

Amundsen thinks the meteorite can yield valuable information to researchers, and also private collectors may want to pay highly for it. He said meteorites from Mars have sold for around NOK 5,000 per gram. Norway’s geological museum has the country’s only meteorite collection “and they’re the right ones to determine what kind of meteorite this is,” Amundsen told VG.
