The Sky Is Falling

A 76 year old woman in Suffolk, England was struck by what appears to be a meteorite while she was hanging washing in her yard. She sustained a one inch gash on her forearm. Her husband found a walnut shaped rock in the yard the next day. As far as I can tell, this is the first well documented case (outside the Bible) of a person actually being hit by a meteorite. Statisticians claim that on average, a person in the U.S. will be hit by a meteorite every 9,300 years.
