Micrometeorites

Brian Robillard (7th Jan, 2019)

Our January talk was on the topic of “Micrometeorites” and was given by Brian Robilliard, a VLMS member.

His talk covered several ingenious methods for collecting micrometeorites at home, how to identify them once collected and how to store them.  As a complementary display, Leni Gagnon brought some of her meteorite specimen collection.
