A capsule from the Genesis probe, which has been gathering particles blown off the Sun, has crashed back to Earth.
Whether or not it's wiped out a small village by turning peoples blood to powder remains to be seen however.
Heh. The Andromeda Strain, right? Saw the news footage about Genesis. Made a nice little crater in the desert. I feel sorry for the helo pilot. Guy's been practicing the catch maneuver for weeks; comes time to earn his money and... no chute. Nothing for him to catch.
