The Comettes were on vacation when their home was hit by a meteorite. The egg-sized space rock stayed buried in the insulation of the French family's home in suburban Paris until they called somebody in to fix their leaking roof, the Telegraph reports. "We got the roof tiler round and he was astounded," said Martine Comette. "He said: 'You need to be Superman to break a tile like that! It must be a meteorite.'"
