Out-of-This-World Rocks -- On October 9, 1992, a meteorite slammed into a car in Peekskill, New York. It was a nightmare for the car's owner, but a dream come true for the tabloids. Here was a reminder of just how dangerous out-of-this-world rocks can be. You can see a piece of the Peekskill meteorite and dozens of other otherworldly rocks at Arizona State University's Center for Meteorite Studies, Bateman Physical Sciences Center, C wing, Room 139, Palm Walk and University Drive (tel. 480/965-6511; meteorites.asu.edu), on the ASU campus. The center, which is just a single small room, is open Monday through Friday from 9:30am to 4:30pm, and admission is free.
