Buddha statue acquired by Nazis originally came from outer spaceIt sounds like a mash-up of Indiana Jones' plots, but German researchers say a heavy Buddha statue brought to Europe by the Nazis was carved from a meteorite that likely fell 10,000 years ago along the Siberia-Mongolia border.

When Joni Mitchell, in her song "Woodstock," sang, "We are stardust..." she was being factual as well as poetic. Every element on earth, except for the lightest, was created in the heart of some massive star.
Neil deGrasse Tyson is cooler than the other side of the pillow, leans toward the science over the poetry, yet somehow isn't getting the traction Sagan did. I hope that changes and he inspires another generation or three to reach for the stars. Neil and I disagree who should fund that, but first let's get people interested in great engineering-scientific achievements again.
