  • Imagine the surprise on Suzy Kop’s face when she returned to her New Jersey home and found a hole in the second-floor ceiling, a divot in the floor and a strange rock that was warm to the touch in the corner.
  • Kop, who lives in Hopewell Township, New Jersey, said that the police had a hard time believing what she suspected: that a meteorite had come crashing down from space and into her father’s bedroom.
  • “They [the police] were afraid that, you know, because it fell from the sky, was it radioactive? Could we have a type of residue on us? So they scanned us and everything came back clear,” Kop told CBS Philadelphia.
