In 1879, a celestial spectacle unfolded in the vast wilderness of Australia near Tenham Station, in western Queensland. Bright meteors streaked across the sky, their fiery trails carving a path from west to east, before shattering into countless extra-terrestrial fragments on the ground. In the aftermath, the precious stones were found scattered over a vast area.
The 19th issue of the «Meteorite Impacts» series takes a hypothetical comic-book-style look at how present-day society would be likely to respond to such an event.
