Amazing Discoveries

New York City's Staten Island Museum holds a curious, rubbery block that gave rise to an everyday habit and a multi-million dollar industry. Just outside the Museum of Cultural and Natural History at the University of Oregon campus in Eugene sits a hulking fiberglass replica of a 15-ton meteorite at the center of bizarre heist and contentious lawsuit. And a rusting sheet of metal at U.S. Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio, serves as the unlikely diary for the survivors of a transport plane called the Flying Dutchman.
