Missing Antarctica Meteorites


Recommended Posts

I know you're joking, but in reality they want to avoid melting the ice by all means to keep the meteorites dry; that's why the meteorites remain frozen until they reach the nitrogen storage vault.

What's the purpose of this? I can understand doing this for stonies, esp CC's.…But irons?

I remember  seeing an ad in the Smithsonian magazine years ago for a meteorite hunting expedition to the Antarctica. They were asking $25,000.00 per person for everything. I'm curious if they actually signed up enough people to make it worthwhile. This was probably back in the 80's so we'll never know.
