1,400-Pound Meteorite Found in Kansas - Yahoo! News

Click here for the full story: "It was in the same area that in 1949 produced a 1,000-pound meteorite now on display at the Celestial Museum in Greensburg, part of the World's Largest Hand Dug Well that is the community's biggest claim to fame."

----

It will no doubt be displayed between the World's Largest Ball of Twine and the Hearing Aids Through The Centuries display.

I think I somehow gave the impression in my post that I was offended by the thought of someone making fun of my hometown. Quite the contrary. As I've been saying for sometime now, it is the epitome of Kansas Tourism:

"Come see a hole in the ground - only ten bucks!! And while you're at it, throw some money into it. The large rock inside might interest you as well; it came all the way from outer space!"

Wow!
