Spanish farmer makes meteoric finding on his patio


For over 30 years, the 100kg rock on farmer Faustino Asensio Lopez’s patio served its purpose as a ham press.

However, what Mr Lopez thought for decades was part of Spanish Civil War missile, turned out to be a meteorite that fell hundreds of thousands of years ago. He contacted scientists after watching a TV show on extra-terrestrial objects, who then confirmed his suspicions.
