A meteorite may have killed someone for the first time in nearly two centuries – Washington Post
Local authorities in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu are investigating whether the death of a man at a college campus over the weekend was the result of a falling meteorite.
A blast at Bharathidasan Engineering College left a crater in the ground and blew out glass windows in nearby buildings. A bus driver who was standing close to the site perished; a number of others, including a gardener and a student, were injured.
After investigators couldn’t find any evidence of explosives, some concluded that the cause of the blast could have been extraterrestrial. According to reports, a blue stone the shape of a diamond was found near the scene.
