Gazeta Wyborcza reports that a meteorite fell through the roof of an unsuspecting resident of the Masurian Lakes District in northeastern Poland. The man was smoking his morning cigarette with a cup of coffee when he heard what he then thought was a bomb fall through the roof of his home. The cold rock left a hole in the man’s roof and was the first meteorite to land in Poland in 17 years that people were witness to. The incident was recorded by the Polish Meteorite Society and scientists were forced to purchase fragments of the rock for testing as – writes the daily – the man who’s house was damaged has decided to make some money off the meteorite rather than give it over to scientific testing. Gazeta Wyborcza writes that there is no law that requires people to hand over meteorites for testing for free, so there is no way to categorize it as an archeological finding and requisition it.
