'A LOT OF FORCE': Mystery object hits center
Substance to be sent to UNLV for analysis
By K.C. HOWARD, REVIEW-JOURNAL, Las Vegas

"On Saturday night, an unidentified object was sent hurtling
through the roof at Steven Gleicher's workplace.

Was the football-sized object a meteor or perhaps something
more common?

And perhaps just as puzzling: How could it rip through a thick pane
of fiberglass strong enough to hold a human being and then embed
itself into a wall?

"It could just be a large piece of asphalt because it is grey on the
outside and black in the middle," said Gleicher, an administrator
at Diagnostic Imaging Southern Nevada, at 3560 E. Flamingo Road,
near Pecos Road."

Scientists Look to Moon for Signs of Early Earth Life by Robert Krulwich

"Morning Edition, May 17, 2006 · The first life on earth would
have left traces in our planet's infant rocks. But those early
layers have since been squeezed and heated out of all
recognition. Some researchers say we should look for
evidence of the earliest life on earth in rocks on the moon."

Some archeologists and geologists have published research about
a Middle Stone Age meteorite impact, which occurred in the Western
Desert of Egypt.

"Or click here for a pic for those of you without Google Earth, etc"

When using Google Earth or Google Maps, is there some
way of finding out what the metadata, i.e. source, date, kind,
resolution, etc., of the imagery for the area being viewed?

Best regards,
