The Sahara Mystery: Unearthing the Origins of a Remarkable Meteorite | #362
Professor Fred WatsonHost
Picture this: a meteorite found in the vast Sahara Desert, not just any ordinary space rock, but one with a composition eerily similar to our own planet. The plot thickens as scientists debate its origins, some proposing volcanic eruptions, while others suggest cataclysmic asteroid impacts. But here's the twist: this meteorite may have been flung from Earth itself, soaring through the cosmos for thousands of years before making its triumphant return. The question remains: how did a piece of Earth escape our gravitational pull and embark on an interstellar journey?
