hunters Steve Arnold and Geoffrey Notkin have been traveling the
world and searching for space rocks, as a team, for eleven years.
Their journeys have taken them from the Arctic Circle to the Atacama
Desert in Chile.
Steve stunned the scientific community in the fall of 2005 when
he discovered a 1,430-lb pallasite meteorite buried in a cornfield
near Brenham, Kansas. It is the largest of its type ever found
in North America. Pallasites are unique among meteorites as they
are composed of iron-nickel and olivine crystals (the gemstone
Geoffrey is a photographer and science writer and has chronicled
their adventures for Meteorite magazine, Rock &
Gem, Seed, Sci Q, and many other national
and international publications. The two friends have made documentaries
about meteorite hunting for Discovery, National Geographic, The
History Channel, PBS, and The Travel Channel.
In the fall of 2008 Steve and Geoffrey starred in a new one-hour
adventure show Meteorite Men for Discovery Science. The
show premieres on Sunday, May 10, 2009. During location filming
at the Brenham site they discovered another large pallasite meteorite
and used part of it to produce an intriguing collectible. Part
of the mass was cut, polished, and prepared into slices that show
off the Brenham meteorite's beautiful green olivine crystals.
The slices were then set in a clear lucite block.
The initial pre-broadcast special edition is strictly
limited to 100 pieces, and each is accompanied by a color
8 1/2 x 11 and numbered certificate of authenticity along with
an exclusive photo of the meteorite's excavation, personally signed
by Steve and Geoffrey, and notes about the find location.
