This was one of the finer aquistions for the Museum. Dubbed the Rosanna Stone, it was found by part time archeologist and full time narcoleptic Rosanna Numblecker in the Wasatch Mountains
The stone was nearly 1.2 billion years old and had what appears to be the carving of an "astronaut" figure etched into the 30 ton rock. Carbon dating dates the piece at 2,670,994,869 B.C. Also the cut of the pants also seem to confirm that the early seventies, even a billion years ago were a popular decade for bell bottoms. After the foreclosure of the museum the priceless stone was ground into grit that was later used as grip tape for skate boards.
