Default meteorite through the roof, off the couch, off the ceiling, and under the computer

http://abcnews.go.com/wire/SciTech/r...040613_33.html

Quote:
A grapefruit-sized meteorite smashed through the roof of a New Zealand house, hitting a couch and bouncing off the ceiling before coming to rest under a computer.

...The Archers, who are following expert advice by drying the rock out in their oven, plan to sell it or give it to a museum.

Experts believe the meteorite, a chunk of an asteroid, could be worth more than $6,300, the newspaper said.
That's even bigger than the head of a chihuahua. I wonder if their insurance covers this.

Act of god?

I suspect insurance would indeed cover something like this.

for real. how the hell do they attach some sort of exact value to something that just fell from the sky.

actually... i bet they had it in some sort of australian dollar amount or something and converted to USD, it looked like a more specific value.

I assume it was probably valued in aussie dollars and 6300 was what it converted to

because a high speed ride through the atmosphere didn't generate enough heat to dry it out?

seriously, what the hell is baking it in the oven going to do that 3000 degrees atmospheric entry temperature didn't do?
