2015/16 #ANSMET Team Heading to the Icefields of the Miller Range to Collect #Meteorites

The 2015/16 ANSMET Team expedition site will be the icefields of the Miller Range (look for MIL on map on the left). This site was last visited in 2013/14 field season but has been visited eight previous seasons (‘85, ‘99, ‘03, ‘05, ‘07, ‘09, ‘11, ‘13) in which ~2500 specimens were collected from all those seasons combined. The #NASA_Curation team, especially those from our #Meteorite lab (image bottom right) look forward to receiving the collection from this year’s expedition. Newly collected specimens collected during the 2015/16 field season will be delivered to our lab facility at the NASA Johnson Space Center in the spring.
