Large Brazilian Meteorite Destroyed By Fire?


Recommended Posts

Some of you may have read about the fire at the National Museum of Brazil. They say just about everything was completely destroyed.

It also housed the Bendego Meteorite, the second largest in the world.

Anyone want to venture a guess as to whether it was completely destroyed? Or just damaged?

I hope the firefighters and some other guys involved helping putting off the fire should be briefed on meteroite in the museum, lest, they should  throw the lunar meteorites, thinking it terrestrial, as some members of this  forum  would have done . The iron meteorites will survive the inferno.
