Canyon Diablo Meteorite

This Canyon Diablo Meteorite was displayed outside the BUHL Planetarium.
This iron nickel meteorite is the fifth large piece of meteorite that was recovered from the Barrier Meter Crater near Winslew Arizona. The original meteorite or or parent body weighing several million tons
Both of them were so fascinated by this piece of meteorite.  This reminds me of the movies Armageddon and Deep Impact.  Watching those movies makes you think, what if...???
