A meteor from the sky strikes a house and turns its owner into a millionaire

Serendipity or luck may change a person’s life in an instant. This quote starts from what happened with a citizen of Indonesia in a story described as strangest on various social media platforms.

An Indonesian working in the manufacture of coffins turned into a millionaire in moments, after a meteor weighing over 2 kg fell on his house, and its value is estimated at 1.8 million dollars.

According to a Metro report, citing Indonesian media, Joshua Hutagalung, 33, was making a coffin outside his home in Kolang, northern Indonesia, when the stone fell and penetrated the roof of the house to settle inside the room.

Joshua said, in press statements received by many reports and news agencies, when you touched the stone, it was still hot and realized that it had fallen from space; Because it is impossible for anyone to have thrown it at my house.

The newspaper pointed out that the stone weighs 2.1 kg and is estimated to be about 4.5 billion years old, pointing out that it is of a very rare type, and its value is about 1.4 million pounds, equivalent to 1.8 million dollars. She added that Joshua, a father of three, has achieved a price of stone equivalent to his income for about 30 years and that he intends to build a church in his village.


The new millionaire said he sold the meteorite to an American expert, Jared Collins, who sold the piece to another American who collects space objects and is currently putting it for study at the Center for Meteorite Studies at the University of Arizona.

He said, “I had three children, and I always wished to have a baby, and I think that the fall of the stone is a sign of good luck I will have a baby.”

The meteorite is expressed by a particle in the solar system that comprises rock debris and maybe the size of small sand grains or the size of a large rock.

Although the size of the meteorite does not exceed the size of a grain of rice, we see it in the form of a meteor when it enters the Earth’s atmosphere. Most of the meteorite glow lasts for a second, and the rest that leaves behind can last for several minutes.
