The Space Rock and a Car

Photography by Attila Adam

Many a space rock have made their marks throughout history, both literally and metaphorically. Just a month from today actually would mark 28 years since a particular hunk of rock not from this world had made such a lasting impression.

Thank you for sharing her story 💛

She had four freakin' months to clean up all that evidence (including the blood), to cover her tracks, and she still did nothing about it.

Thank you for sharing this story, Megan.
