California's largest meteorite museum opens tomorrow!


Recommended Posts

Meteorite Museum Opens at UCLA.

"Our goal is to make this gallery the world's best scientifically oriented meteorite museum," Wasson said. "Our collection is by far the largest in California and is a gift to the people of Southern California. The opportunity to learn in scientific detail about meteorites has not been available in California before."

I hope to go. If not tomorrow then soon as it is only 6 miles from me.

This is definitely on my list of places to go when I'm in LA again.

Thanks Mitchel.

I went by the Meteorite Gallery and was very impressed by its simplicity and meteorites displayed. Dr. Alan Rubin was there and I had a nice chat while he was getting things ready for the reception being held now. Here are my pictures. Some were taken twice because the flash caused a spot.

Here are my photos of the latest version of the display:

Here is a video he made which describes some of the collection.
