News from the 1994 Antarctic field team is that 579 meteorites were collected in the Foggy Bottom region in Queen Alexandra Range and 21 from Allan Hills were picked up by two members of a geologic field party. A reconnaissance trip to the Byrd and Darwin Glaciers may have added a few more to the collection. Although most of the specimens are small, ordinary chondrites, there are a few interesting ones in this collection. Stay tuned!
We are excited to announce that the Curatorial Facility is now part of the JSC Home Page on the World Wide Web. It is our intention to provide the most current Antarctic Meteorite Newsletter along with photographs, where possible, using this medium. Eileen Stansbery and Claire Dardano have written an article on how you can access this information.
An updated version of the table originally published in the Meteoritical Bulletin is available. You may obtain this by ANONYMOUS FTP ACCESS to CURATE.JSC.NASA.GOV.
