Authorities Staying Firm on Meteorite “Hypothesis”


NICARAGUA NEWS – Nicaraguan authorities are staying firm on the “hypothesis” that a meteorite fell on Managua Saturday night, though they are not “specialists” on the subject.

At the same time, on Wednesday a number of rocks taken from the crater of the wooded area of the air force base, near the August C. Sandino airport, were sent abroad for studies.

“We ebelieve that something fell from the sky, however, we are not certain what it was, as such we are conducting studies to confirm or eliminate the assumption,” said on Wednesday Wilfried Strauch, advisor to the government agency, the Instituto Nicaragüense de Estudios Territoriales (INETER).

“If our research does not coincide with the hypothesis (of a meteor), we will keep searching for others,” said Strauch.

The expert admitted “we do not have experience in meteorites”, thus have requested international support in the case.

The crater and the surrounding area will be sheltered from the rains while authorities continue their analysis and issue a final report, expected within a month’s time.
