World Space Week needs your help, and it's easy to do all it requires is a fist-sized rock from your neighbourhood. No matter where you live in the world, the organizers are asking you to send in these stones to form part of an "Earth Master Sample." From this vast collection, a small fragment from each rock will be taken out, combined with the other fragments in a powder, and then mixed up with a Mars meteorite. Crystal producer Swarovski will then make 100 crystals from this powder. Swarovski plans to show off the crystals during Yuri's Night...
