Meteorite crashes into South Korean greenhouse

A greenhouse grower in South Korea escaped death when a heavy piece of a meteorite crashed into his greenhouse on March 9. The nine metorite weighing 9 kilos went through the greenhouse roof and caused a small crater inside the greenhouse. Luckily nobody was harmed. Additional fragments of the meteorite were found upon further inspection.
