Phil Green wasn't quite sure what he had, when he noticed the unusual rock on the banks of the Merrimack River…
He suspected it might have come from outer space. But he had no idea just how unusual it actually was.
Phil was puzzled by the strange rock so he held on to it. But before long, he placed it in the yard and forgot about it. The rock sat under a tree for six years until a friend started asking questions.
Phil's sister in law also thought it was from space so she sent it to a friend who works for NASA. That friend confirmed the rock was special, and that it wasn't actually a rock at all.
What Phil had found was a piece of the Russian Space Station Mir
