Hunting for Meteorites

Join us as we discover the best places on earth to look for meteorites and see if you could identify one in the field.

Thousands of meteorites fall to Earth each year. They can tell us important information about the birth of our solar system, but before we can study them, we have to find them. Unfortunately, some of the best places to look for meteorites also happen to be some of the most inhospitable, as Museum researcher Gretchen Benedix found out on her recent trip to the Nullarbor Desert in Australia. Join us as we discover what it's like to go on the hunt for meteorites and learn how they are identified in the field.
