Description

According to Wikipeida, "Meteorito El Chaco" weighs 37 tonnes, which makes it the world's 2nd heaviest meteorite; only discovered in 1969, it fell to earth a few thousand years ago. Largest known remnant of the Campo del Cielo meteorites, though a much larger one - the "Meson de Fierro", or "Big Table of Iron" - was surveyed in 1783 but was lost when it sank back into the ground.
