In this episode, the pair land in Brenham, Kansas where for more than a century; pieces of a large meteorite that fell thousands of years ago have been unearthed. Using advanced metal detection equipment Arnold and Notkin work tirelessly to find the meteorite pieces that have yet to be discovered. When successful, they donate a portion of every find to science.
For thousands of years, meteorites have slammed into the Earth’s surface carrying an invaluable record of the origins of our solar system. But finding meteorites on Earth, some buried over centuries by thick layers of dirt and sediment, is no easy task.
Meteorite hunters Steve Arnold and Geoff Notkin travel to some of the most remote locations around the world to explore the scientific and financial value of meteorites. Featuring treks in Chile, Sweden, Australia, the US, Mexico, and more, these meteorite men meet with top scientists, geologists, astronomers, and meteorite experts to reveal a deeper understanding of how meteorites have helped to build our solar system and shape our planet.
