The Vatican's Meteorite Man

Did you know the Vatican has an official Jesuit in charge of its meteorite collection? More importantly, did you know the Vatican was collecting meteorites?!?! Planning to fight Superman, are they?

RubeRad -- who apparently is Dr. RubeRad to you and me -- gets the hat tip for this one: Interview with Brother Guy Consolmagno: Curator of Meteorites at the Vatican Observatory. He found it at this blog: Share the Joy.

All seriousness aside, this is an interesting interview regarding the relationship of science and the Church.
