Scientific Articles and Abstracts

Our recent meteorite finds have been the subject of thorough scientific research and several papers have been published about them. Especially our four new Martian meteorites and the lunar mare basalt NWA 479 attracted much attention on the 32nd Lunar and Planetary Science Conference, March 12-16, 2001, in Houston, Texas, as well as on the 64th Annual Meeting of the Meteoritical Society, September 10-14, 2001, Vatican City. We just added a preview on some selected articles and abstracts that will be presented on the 33rd Lunar and Planetary Science Conference, March 11-15, 2002, in League City, Texas. Have a look.
