Wednesday Hump Day Fun Fact # 29

Posted by Daubin Barshtak on September 18, 2013.

Did you know that in around 3200 B.C. Egyptians used iron rich meteorites to fashion some of their jewelry? Nine of these extraterrestrial artifacts were discovered in 1911. Originally they deduced that the artifacts were made of the common element iron. This was very unusual because normally iron was the base material for common tools. However, little did they know, the iron actually came from another planet! Using gamma rays the scientists were able to detect trace elements that are not present in earthly ores. I guess the truth really is out there!
