It wasn’t a loudly or widely broadcast expedition.

Quite the opposite, really.

But it was fast. Lightning fast.

In the time that it would take federal authorities or even the state authorities to pull up a blank Word document and start a grant application or formal requisition request, LexCorp attorneys had already submitted all of the necessary forms and paperwork to get private access to the four verified sites where meteors crashed down and disappeared off of the Delaware shore. Even more miraculously, they somehow manage to shove through the approvals.

And up come the rocks.

Over the course of three days, LexCorp researchers go deep into the waters of the Atlantic and bring the enormous meteor fragments to the surface.

There is a film over the water at one of the sites, orange and slimy. It congeals in places and clings to the boats and equipment but doesn’t seem to hinder them. Samples are collected in vials by a particularly circumspect scientist and carefully cased up to be brought back to the lab for study.

In several of the fragments, there are pieces of metal exposed. Not ore, but refined and shaped. When the space rock was brought to the surface, aforementioned circumspect scientist was a bundle of nerves and anticipation. It resolves immediately into joy and relief as he spies the dull metallic shine.

All of it, the entire extraction, is carefully handled by men in protective equipment and bundled up for delivery.

Lex Luthor is going to be very pleased with his investment.
