According to the official, the government is making contact with the Geoscience Institute in Germany and requesting the United States for a formal collaboration, to further investigation of the incident.

First Lady, Rosario Murillo, said “we are pleased that our country is making news internationally and (the incident) being debated among scientists (…) all the experts who want to come for their research work are welcome, it is good for us…”

“Our hypothesis is still a meteorite, and we are investigating the event with this idea,” explained Strauch.
