Very few people realize this, but every day, hundreds of pounds of space rock—we’re talking asteroid pieces, iron, rock, and nickel—falls to the Earth from outer space. By the time it lands, however, it has largely disintegrated, which is why we never see it. At least, that’s what’s supposed to happen.

Of course, there’s always an exception to the rule, and the Hoba meteorite might be the world’s biggest. What makes it so strange isn’t just its size or that it made it all the way to Earth intact. No, there’s something else about this spectacular space rock, and it has scientists completely stumped…

Scientists estimate that hundreds of pounds of meteoric material falls toward the Earth every single day. While most of it disintegrates before it reaches the surface, sometimes it lands completely intact. The Hoba meteorite is one of the best examples of one of these uber-rare instances.
