    Invite each group to research a famous meteorite, such as the Willamette meteorite, the Hoba meteorite, the Cape York meteorite, or the Ahnighito meteorite. Help groups find information about their meteorites using the web and the school library.   The meteorite has since been cut several times, and an even larger one has since been found, but the slice currently on the block represents an aesthetic and scientific anomaly. Author: Matthew Taub.

    The multi award-winning series has informed and educated literally millions of viewers, in many countries, about meteorite science and recovery. Geoff and Steve remain actively involved in meteorite research and continue to make new finds and discoveries. The Research Continues. The public, too, continues to be fascinated. For an up-close look, pieces of the Murchison meteorite can be viewed at the Museum of Victoria, Australia, the Smithsonian.

This book considers the mechanism and timing of core formation and basaltic volcanism on asteroids, and the effects of heating water-rich bodies. Results from meteorite research are placed in a galactic setting, and a theory is proposed for the origin of the planets of our Solar System.

"Meteorites" is a great introduction to the entire science surrounding these enigmatic little rocks from space. It is written at an accessible level that would be ideal as a reference for high school students or for someone just developing an interest in the field of meteorites/5(17).

American Meteorite Lab. Another small information book put out by Nininger in a two part series. One deals with large impacts on the Earth including the Siberian fall. The other deals with meteors and meteorites telling the reader what they are and where they come from.

The book contains meteorite oxide that is a part of meteor(ite) crater. A meteorite is a solid piece of debris from an object, such as a comet, asteroid, or meteoroid, that originates in outer space and survives its passage through the atmosphere to reach the surface of a planet or the original object enters the atmosphere, various factors such as friction, pressure, and chemical interactions with the atmospheric gases cause it to heat up and radiate energy.

Research Posted on Janu by Center for Meteorite Studies At the Center for Meteorite Studies, researchers work on a wide variety of topics in meteoritic and planetary science, from studying the oldest materials in the Solar System to analyzing the data from the latest NASA missions.

Meteorite Hunter brings their stories­­and the science behind them--to English-speaking audiences, often for the first time. Armed with his own expertise and a wealth of eyewitness details, Gallant presents a rare and eye-opening exploration of Siberia's famed meteorites, from the early history of meteoritics to our current struggles to track 5/5(1).

The Murchison meteorite has been described as smelling like tar, wet hay, and the contents of a vacuum cleaner bag. James St. John/CC By. The Symposium 'Meteorite Research' was conceived originally at the second meeting of the UNESCO Working Group on Meteorites, held in Paris October, under the chairmanship of Professor J.

About Exploring Meteorite Mysteries Teachers and scientists designed this book to engage students in inquiry science and to extend science with interdisciplinary connections. The study of meteorites provides a unifying theme that links almost every aspect of Earth and planetary science with mathematics, physics, chemistry and even biology.

The fireball from the meteorite, which is estimated to have had an initial mass of 22, pounds, was seen streaking across the sky as from as far away as Kentucky. The meteorite, which ended up weighing 26 pounds at impact, struck the car of Michelle Knapp and tore a hole through her trunk (Norton ).

My Meteorite is not an easy book to read—it demands that the reader work to find or create order in the text—but it is an interesting and worthwhile one. Once read, it invites re-reading, perhaps with a pad and pen in hand to list some of Dodge’s sources for further research.

The Barringer Crater Company and its scientific advisors endorse efforts to make the field of Meteoritics and Planetary Science more welcoming to a diverse array of talented scientists. SinceThe Barringer Family Fund for Meteorite Impact Research has awarded almost half of its research grants to women, based on the scientific merits of.

The Curator, Dr. Mayne, is also available to give talks about meteorites, meteorite research, and the Monnig Collection to local educational groups. Mayne contact info. The Monnig Meteorite Collection is one of the largest-university based collections in the world, providing amazing research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students.

If you are interested in the graduate research opportunities available at TCU through the Monnig Meteorite Collection, please contact the Curator, Dr.

Rhiannon Mayne. Our purpose is to develop a new interdisciplinary journal covering the multitude of subject matters involved in meteorite research. Due to an insufficient amount of publication space, the increasing number of specimens available for research, and a growing list of research centers, only a small percentage of valuable submissions is ever brought.
