Finding Space Treasures on Earth-an exclusive Interview with the Science Channel’s Meteorite Man | ISDC 2014

Jun 8, 2014

QGITS had the opportunity of being the media present for the the 2014 ISDC National Space Convention.  This astronomical annual convention was filled with many innovators in space and many who had been to space to explore our mostly unknown universe and beyond.

There was one man, whoever, who explores space in his own backyard-Geoffrey Notkin, also known as the Meteorite Man and host of the Science Channel’s Meteorite Men.  Notkin is not only a television celebrity, appearing in shows for PBS, Discovery, NASA, National Geographic, and the History Channel, but he is also an award-winning author and owner of Aerolite Meteorites LLC, a company that provides meteorite and other spatial specimens to collectors and institutions worldwide.  While Notkin himself has never been to space, he knows more about it than most from the treasures he finds around the world and many in his own backyard in Tuscon, Arizona.

I had the joy of interviewing this well versed Meteorite Man and picking his brains on these extraterrestrial objects.  See video below.
