A local newpaper in Venezuela has scooped CNN, NBC and CBS and broken the big story about an amazing new "meteorite" find (see below). We are sure that this will generate intense scientific interest as well as intense competition amongst the list dealers as they vie to purchase this cosmic beauty. Below is a tranlation of this ground breaking article. "Into the hands of carvajalense family meteorite that fell 13 years ago and deserves to be studied. It does about 13 years, as a result of a "rain of fleeting stars", phenomenon and astronomical spectacle that every year happens generally once, fell in one of the houses of the parish Glad Field, especially in the house of the Suárez family, of that populated community a small meteorite that could well solve many questions on asteroids and until the origin of the life. The grandmother of the young person David Suárez, witnessed the fall that night, a strange luminous object in the patio of her residence and decided to approach what was a small rock, of about 12 centimeters in length by seven of wide, still warms up by effect of the strong atmospheric effect. She kept the small stone, characterized to have oval and contouring form with beautiful lines brown, yellow color and amber, as if one was beautiful "Eggs of Passover" made by the Russians like inestimables jewels, like a memory, without knowledge that nothing less had in its hands than many centuries of studies of the cosmos and perhaps of its beginning. After the death of his grandmother, the young person David Suárez decides to take it to science, nevertheless many students of the matter in that time, which they wanted was to cut the rock and to destroy it to study it without contributing nothing in return, in addition without recognizing the inestimable value that represents for science. Suárez, makes the call to the true investigators of the origin of the life and the sidereal space, so that they communicate with him through telephones 2442260 and 2441804."
