Hi Gaius,

The photo of the silver arm-ring being examined by Darren Webster, makes me think of an armored

chondrule shown in the cross-section of a meteorite slice.

Hi Gaius,

The article about the finding of a viking hoard, makes me think of the Viking I, and Viking II

missions to mars in 1976 where, among other experiments, the landers studied meteorite impact

craters. Cool.

Hi Adam,

I didn't realize that Viking hoards in Scotland were meteorite related. I think maybe Gaius

is trying to say that vikings had swords, and swords are made out of metal, and some meteorites

are mostly metal, while others have just a small percentage in their make up. Right? I mean,

that MUST be it. Otherwise..........................why try foolishness (WTF).
