First one ever found in Japan.
Yup. I caught that on the initial read of your [as usual, excellent]post.
Maybe it's just me, but the fact that one is found in Japan doesn't come as a major find. No more than if the first one ever was found in Belgium, or Greece, or...[fill in the blank].

This meterorite is smaller, faster, and cheaper than any American meteorite. And it can go much farther on the same amount of fuel. Obviously this one did not collide with a Chevrolet Denali on its way to Earth, ot it would have been totaled, with any passengers dead.
Apparently it was copied from a larger American design, but has much better fit and finish.
