Actually, a lot of the stuff that comes from Mars these days is made in China...

I bought a chunk of meteorite at the Tucson rock show 2 years ago.
It is from Morocco, but the guy I bought it from couldn’t tell me anything about it (he didn’t speak English, and I don’t speak Moroccan)
I’ll check for a Martian label when I get home.

When I was about 12 my grandma's brother was walking out to his dairy barn and a sudden concussion of wind knocked him across the driveway. The next time he went to the pasture where they kept their 2 year old calves there was a large, grey rock, cow sized, is how he put it. He was afraid that sone word getting out would have his farm crawling with strangers so he dynamited it. I got a chunk the size of a basketball and brought it back to Wyoming and put it in my moms rock garden for years. Still have it.
