JARE 51 Meteorite Hunting Mission

The JARE 51 Mission to collect meteorites in the Eastern Sør Rondane Mountains was a success. The team, which spent the better part of four weeks in the field, found 635 meteorite fragments ranging in size from a few grams to 5 kg. Most of them were ordinary chondrites; however some are possible iron meteorites and others ureilites, although they will need to be taken back to a lab for further analysis. The team is very happy with the results!
