Meteor hunters find the first pieces of the MI meteorite

The first meteorite found was reportedly the size of a pecan, with the third about the size of a walnut. "It's been a real good day".

Is that just a rock in your backyard, or could it be a meteorite, a piece of debris from the meteor that held metro Detroiters attention Tuesday night? "I just saw a little black spot and that was it, but you know, so I was very fortunate to make the recovery but undoubtedly there's more out there", he said, according to the newspaper.

Meteorite hunter Robert Ward walks to the beach of a lake in Hamburg Township Thursday, Jan. 18, 2018, having found three meteorites so far. He added that from a quick look at the meteorites, they all appear related and they all looked like ordinary chondrites - the most common type of meteorite found on Earth. "All right man, it's happening", he explained. "This fact, combined with the brightness of the meteor (which suggests a fairly big space rock), shows that the object penetrated deep into the atmosphere before it broke apart (which produced the sounds heard by at least 77 observers)".

"I've been arrested and tried for spying in the Middle East and nearly abducted by the FARC - the cocaine guerillas - in Colombia", he said.

Why Was Jerry Sandusky A Bigger Story Than Larry Nassar?
She spoke to Raisman and Maroney about Nassar's technique, but none of them really understood it, she said. She looked directly at Nassar when she delivered her message to him.

"No", he said. "No way".

It can also be financially rewarding.

" I didn't put two and two together until later on", she said.

"The study of meteorites tells us much about the earliest conditions and processes during the formation and earliest history of the solar system, such as the age and composition of solids, the nature of the organic matter, the temperatures achieved at the surface and interiors of asteroids, and the degree to which materials were shocked by impacts", NASA officials said.

Australian Open: A lookahead to Sunday, recap of Saturday
World number one Simona Halep booked her place in round two, avoiding the first round exit that befell her in the past two years. No. 9 Johanna Konta beat Madison Brengle 6-3, 6-1, handing the US a 10th loss in 11 first-round women's matches.

Darryl Pitt, a New York City inhabitant and shooting star specialist to Christie's sale house, is putting forth $20,000 for a recuperated section weighing no less than 1 kilogram.

"Meteorites are exceedingly rare", Pitt said. Another piece is the size of a quarter and the largest meteorite is about an inch wide, he said.

Todd Slisher had struck out in his previous hunts for meteorites. "And every meteorite that's found here, every single one, it's gonna sell for at least its weight in gold".

He explained that he is "especially motivated" to obtain a fragment of the meteor because he grew up in Southfield, Michigan. Federal law says meteorites belong to the owners of the property on which they fall. And no, they won't let you touch it. The analysis is free with museum admission.

Whole Foods left with empty shelves under new stocking system, employees say
That's because it appears that Whole Foods is, uh, running out of food? "Regional and upper store management know about this". If you've had problems running into a few empty shelves at Whole Foods lately, you're definitely not alone on that one.
