King Tut’s dagger was from outer space. No, really. Blade made from iron from a meteorite, long before the “Iron Age.” (It’s not the only weapon/artifact made of meteoric metal in the ancient world, but still, so cool for the Tut.) And you know what else can blow your mind, the hieroglyphs meaning “iron of the sky” appear about the same time on tablets, i.e. the Egyptians knew the meteoric metal came from the heavens. Sometimes life sounds so like science fiction. Don’t you love it?
Often scientific papers have rather plain, jargon-heavy titles, but every now and then, one appears and proves to be a glorious exception to this.
