Exploring Legends Interview with "Meteorite Man" Geoff Notkin

Geoffrey Notkin MN'10 is a well-known meteorite expert and host of the critically acclaimed Discovery Science Channel TV show "Meteorite Men."

Notkin will share with interviewer Jim Clash FR'99 tales of hunting space rocks while filming in such diverse locales as Chile's Atacama Desert, the Swedish arctic, Poland, Russia, Australia and the famous 48,000-year-old Odessa Crater in Texas.

What's the difference between a Pallasite and a Sikhote-Alin? The prevalence of stone meteorite falls versus metallics? And the definition of meteorite and meteoroid? Notkin knows and will reveal it all in colorful detail. He will also discuss the recent fireball over Chelyabinsk - even have a piece of the meteorite to show.

Following the interview, Clash will open the floor to audience questions. Limited quantities of Notkin's latest book "Rock Star: Adventures of a Meteorite Man" (Stanegate Press, 2012) will also be for sale.
