Holy Crap You Guys It's a Rock From Mars!
- A certified authentic 2mg piece of space!
- Mars rock from Martian shergottite NWA 4930, among others!
- Packaged in a protective shell with a card describing its history
Sometimes, when a meteor and a celestial body love each other very much, they crash into each other, causing rocks to launch into space and eventually make their way to our beloved Earth. Until now, if you wanted a Mars baby, you had to be the first (FIRST!) person to the crash site and scoop up the booty and run. While that is certainly a possibility if you live in driving distance of the crash site, it's not as feasible when the trajectory lands the space chunks on another continent.
Now, you can order a piece of the red planet right here on ThinkGeek. The Martian shergottite, NWA 4930, landed in northwest Africa. Once the pieces were examined by scientists and certified to be authentic pieces of Mars, they were packaged in protective shells, complete with a card describing their history. A small magnet at the top of the shell lets you hang your piece of Martian awesome on your fridge or the connective bits of your cube wall. Own a piece of space, while they last. (Obviously we can't guarantee the arrival of meteors to Earth!)
