Last year Herbie Hancock had a piece
of the planet Mars in his jacket pocket during the 25th Anniversary
Kennedy Center Gala of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz.
As you might imagine, this piece of Mars had the best night
out that Mars ever had—and it can now be yours! It will go to
the highest bidder at the largest ever auction of meteorites this
Sunday, October 14th in New York.
Accompanied by a scientific abstract
as well as a note from Herbie, there are only 300 pounds of Mars on
Earth, which makes Mars among the rarest naturally occurring
substances on Earth---and given its earthly provenance, this bit of
Mars is far more rare still!
