Meteor Rush


After the meteor shower over Russia last week, many areas experienced damages. However after a few of the meteors exploded in the atmosphere and spread fragments over the area, the focus has turned from repairs to searches.


Not only russians but also people from around the world have started to comb through ice and snow to find this precious metal compound. The first to alert the public of the space fragments was the Urals Federal University. The fragments they found were only 0.5-1cm in length. The larger fragments may have landed in the lake, where the search by well funded adventurers has ensued.


With gold at such high prices, its hard to believe that any substance could be more expensive. Even the tiniest of asteroid pieces quickly proved this to be a falsity. One tiny piece of the substance that has sent every russian into a frenzy, is estimated to be worth 2,200$ per gram, 40 times greater than the cost of gold. With this price, it is easy to see why it is so desired. However many people have said that they may never give up their piece of history.
