Astronomers plan to fish an interstellar meteorite out of the ocean utilizing an enormous magnet

Astronomers are planning a fishing journey to land an extraterrestrial interloper on Earth: A small meteorite from one other star system that crashed into the Pacific Ocean with power equal to about 121 tons (110 metric tons) of TNT. 

The group, from Harvard College, hopes to search out fragments of this interstellar rock — referred to as CNEOS 2014-01-08 — which slammed into Earth on January 8, 2014.
