Scientists Just Discovered A Massive 30-Ton Meteorite In Argentina

On Sept. 10, scientists found the largest recorded meteorite since Hoba (60-tons) weighing in at 30-tons in northern Argentina in an area known as Campo del Cielo or “Field of Heaven.”

The Gancedo meteorite is the second-largest ever found and was discovered 674 miles north of Buenos Aires.

Scientists believe it landed there during a shower of metallic meteorites containing 100 tons of space debris which fell to Earth 4,000 years ago.

Some estimate the meteorite to be worth as much as $10-$12 million.
