Man Becomes Millionaire After £1.4million Space Rock

A coffin maker in Indonesia became an instant millionaire – when a £1.4million lump of space rock crashed through his roof. Josua Hutagalung, 33, was at home when the football-sized meteorite smashed through the veranda at the edge of his living room.

Experts have hailed the 4.5billion-year-old space rock as one of the most significant meteorite finds ever – saying it could contain elements which give clues to the origins of life. Josua, of Kolang, in North Sumatra, has already sold the rock to a specialist collector – given him enough money to retire and build a new church in his village.
