Even before they had the meteorite out of the ground, the scientific experts at the site were able to debunk prevailing wisdom that the spectacular meteorite fall of Brenham, Kansas, occurred 20,000 years ago. Its location in the Pleistocene epoch soil layer puts that date closer to 10,000 years ago.

"We know it is recent," said Carolyn Sumners, director of Astronomy at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, as she surveyed progress on the dig. "Native Americans could have seen it."

Has anyone read Dan Brown's "Deception Point"? Hmmmm...

As a side thought have any of the world's space agencies tried to create an artificial asteroid, like by dropping down an iron sphere weighing a few kilos?
