Man Becomes A Millionaire When Meteorite Manna From Heaven Crashes Through His Roof


One minute, you’re minding your own business, working outside your home building a coffin, and the next minute, a smoking meteor worth a small fortune smashes through the roof of your deck and ends up buried in the dirt next to your living room. to be.


It wasn’t a typical day, but that’s exactly what happened to a 33-year-old Indonesian coffin maker named Josua Hutagalung. “I was working on a coffin near the street in front of my house when I heard a rumbling sound that made my house shake. It was as if a tree had fallen on us ”, the father of three he told the sun. “[The meteorite] it was too hot to pick it up so my wife scooped it out and we carried it inside. “

Weighing about 4.5 pounds, the 4-billion-year-old meteorite was later classified as the extremely rare CM1 / 2 carbonaceous chondrite variety.

In the space rock market, it sells for $ 850 a gram. When you do the math, that’s roughly $ 1,858,556 ka-ching!

As soon as news of the incident broke, American space rock guru Jared Collins hopped on a plane to Sumatra to buy the precious cargo. After receiving a large number of offers, Collins sold the alien hoard to Indianapolis-based meteorite collector Dr. Jay Piateck, who mailed it for safekeeping to the Arizona State University Center for Meteorite Studies ( where liquid nitrogen is currently stored).

While Hutagalung won’t disclose the exact dollar amount he ended up accepting for his 4.5-pound loot from outer space, estimates are well over a million dollars.

With his new fortune, Hutagalung says he plans to help build a church for his community. He also has a more personal desire. Money can’t buy him, but he’s optimistic that his streak of good fortune is not completely over yet.

“I have always wanted a daughter, and I hope this is a sign that now I will be lucky to have one,” she said.
