Siena, Italy: The Meteorite That Started It All?

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 23:23:22 PDT

The famous and well respected Ursula B. Marvin penned an opinion tome in the September 1995 issue of Meteoritics suggesting that the Siena meteorite fall of 1794 is “History’s Most Consequential Meteorite Fall.” No matter how you slice it, it’s a tall order for a meteorite to be the Most Consequential. The abstract of Marvin’s […](image)

Another book on Meteor Crater

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 22:33:30 PDT

I finished a two-year long project a few days ago. It is a new book and it is about Meteor Crater again. Yes I know I am in a rut. But I am not going to talk much about the book itself. What I want to tell you this month is the story of the […](image)

Bob Hoover – 1938-2017

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 20:12:45 PDT

Commemorating the life of my friend and of our fellow meteorite-hunting colleague.The recent passing of Robert Hoover has prompted me to postpone this month’s article, and instead to make notice of this sad news. Robert Dan Hoover, Born in Corona, CA on January 25, 1938 passed peacefully while in hospice care near his home in […](image)

Mukundpura CM2

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 18:17:19 PDT

CM2 meteorites are regolith breccias. They’ve been through cycles of crushing and lithification at an asteroid surface. They are dark with opaque matrix and varying amounts of chondrules, olivine aggregates, CAI and mineral grains. This is a sample of a CM2 fall that is reported to have distinct lithologies. Our samples, whose early field name […](image)

Ferricrete adhesions on Thailandites

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 17:19:26 PDT

It is one of the interesting factoids of tektite lore: Never, not even once, has a splashform tektite been reported that shows an embedded object or clear imprint from the ground surface on which the tektites fell. However, that noteworthy constant only serves to sharpen the search for the first one. Most tektite aficionados have […](image)

Good Bye Cassini. Hello Saturn Meteorites

Fri, 01 Sep 2017 23:03:40 PDT

Back in 2004 I wrote a column for The Meteorite Times about my journey with Saturn and Cassini. By the time you read this the Cassini spacecraft will have said goodbye to us on earth and plunged into Saturn’s icy atmosphere, all 22 feet and 12,500 pounds of her (well, actually only 4,685 pounds since […](image)

Impact Breccias Another Visit

Fri, 01 Sep 2017 22:54:49 PDT

Years ago I collected many more things. As a child, I collected stamps and coins. As an adult, I have collected tektites, antique balance scales, civil war artifacts, fossils, meteorites and more. I have reduced my collecting in the last couple decades to very slowly adding some additional meteorites only. I have stopped buying anymore […](image)

Bob’s Bulletin – Vol. 3 No. 1

Fri, 01 Sep 2017 20:47:54 PDT

A newsletter for unclassified meteorites found in the USA. In all of my previous Bob’s Bulletins, I prefaced each one with an explanation of what I mean by the phrase “orphaned-meteorites from the USA”. I defined “orphaned” as being meteorite “finds” that are recovered in the U.S., but are not being recorded. Contrary to what […](image)

NWA 5000 Lunar Melt Veins

Fri, 01 Sep 2017 18:06:32 PDT

I was given thirteen NWA 5000 Lunar (feldspathic breccia) thin sections to photograph. Each section has melt rock that merits attention. In some it appears as small puddles but in most it appears as veins, some traversing the full width of the sample. Of course thin sections are just that – thin (virtually two dimensional) […](image)

Ries Glass Ballistic Blobs and their World

Fri, 01 Sep 2017 17:49:28 PDT

In western Bavaria there is a broad, circular, low-relief basin some 24 km in diameter that is home to a story-book perfect village dating to medieval times. Appropriately, the village of Nordlingen, with wall and moat, is also circular. At the center of town stands an ancient cathedral with a magnificent 90m steeple, all built […](image)

On August 28, 2017, the meteorite world, Texas Christian University, his former students and his many friends celebrated the life of Dr. Arthur Ehlmann, a kind giant of a man, a man who called Texas Christian University home for 60 years. People from all walks of life, academics, business people, former students and others came […](image)
