There is amazing footage of the nighttime fireball of the Buzzard Coulee Meteorite that fell in Canada on November 2008. The fall occurred just before a blanket of winter snow, so the meteorites are well preserved. In this episode, Geoff and Steve search for pieces of this famous meteorite. Also, the meteorite hunters receive a surprise invitation to visit the newly discovered, and highly protected, Whitecourt Crater and hunt the surrounding area.
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.
