If researchers were to obtain more samples from the massive meteorite, there’s a chance that even more might be found,

They might find the Superman's a green, crystalline mineral Kryptonite. :sm

15 tons?  I had no idea they could survive at that size.

Am I the only one that found this line odd?  Maybe it is just me, but I would expect there to be minerals in the universe that are not found natively on Earth.

I thought the same thing when I read it. Given the size differences of the 2 at the least you'd think it would be more likely for stuff to exist we've never seen before. But I'm not a scientist so maybe I'm missing some information about possible known combinations of crap or something.

15 tons and what do you get?  Two new minerals and deeper in debt.

I did a bit of digging to see just how big these things can be.  I'd have thought one of this size would have created a tremendous impact crater and or damage as it came to earth.  Seems there are several that were larger.
